Most parasitic zoonoses are neglected diseases despite causing a considerable global burden of ill health in humans. A review of available literatures indicates that many parasitic zoonoses are endemic in neighbouring countries of Myanmar. However, the information on zoonotic parasitic diseases in Myanmar is very limited. The prevalence of some parasitic zoonoses in livestock of Myanmar and its neighbouring countries has been highlighted in this review. Prevention and control programs against sources and reservoirs of parasitic zoonoses and other zoonoses should be planned by public health and veterinary officers based on reliable information from systematic surveillance.
