Abstract This report presents the findings from a prospective quantitative and qualitative study conducted by collecting data on accidents and zoonoses to children under the age of 16 on farms and in the countryside over a 16-month period through primary care networks. General practitioners were selected from defined regions to collect data on farm accidents and zoonoses seen in children in primary care. The data were analysed to identify the nature and numbers of accidents and illness occurring in children. A typology of high risk situations for childhood accidents and zoonoses connected with the countryside and agriculture is presented and commented in light of the findings from available literature.
