Zoonotic Disease Program

Zoonotic diseases are diseases that are transmitted between animals and humans. They include all diseases that people can catch from animals such as wildlife, domestic animals, insects, primates, and birds. Some important zoonotic diseases of New Mexico include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Plague, Rabies, West Nile Virus, and Zika Virus. Also see our Zoonotic Information for Veterinarians page to learn more.

The New Mexico Department of Health acknowledges the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s One Health initiative that recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment.
