AbstractAs zoonoses are of concern to both human and animal health, the question was raised whether a joint analysis of surveillance information from both sectors would be more productive for disease prevention and control. Currently this information is collected in different datasources and an overview on routinely collected data in Germany was needed. An inventory was conducted to systematically document the content and relevant characteristics of existing datasources. Even if the suitability of data depends on the purpose of use, this overview enables a first assessment, which information is available for subsequent analysis in the field of zoonotic disease surveillance.
