Comparison of knowledge, attitude and practices of animal and human brucellosis between nomadic pastoralists and non-pastoralists in Kenya

The seroprevalence of brucellosis among nomadic pastoralists and their livestock in arid lands is reported to be over 10-fold higher than among non-pastoralists farmers and their livestock in Kenya. This study compared the seroprevalence of brucellosis among nomadic pastoralists and non-pastoralist farmers and the farmers’ knowledge of the disease and high-risk practices associated with brucellosis infection.
