The article focuses on the different aspects of zoonotic and food-borne diseases in Nairobi, Kenya and Ibadan, Nigeria. It says that the health condition of urban population is the result of socio-economic factors, environment, and prevalence and presence of pathogens. It also mentions that the Ecohealth and One Health provide a tool and conceptual framework for addressing zoonoses in two countries. Moreover, it also discusses key findings from the studies in both countries which include misleading perception on zoonotic risks, the importance of gender as a food safety determinant, and relatively cheap and simple interventions can lead to the improvements in food safety.
