Ticks and tick-borne diseases (TTBDs) are among the most severe and widespread concerns in many tropical places, with serious consequences for livestock production, wildlife protection, and human health [1]. TTBDs, which include East Coast fever (ECF), Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), bovine babesiosis, and anaplasmosis, account for 60-80% of pathogenic illnesses and kill humans, wildlife, and domestic animals [2]. The One Health approach is a comprehensive strategy that recognizes the interrelation of human, animal, and environmental health, and it has proven to be effective in controlling TTBDs in various parts of the world.
