dc.description.abstract <p>Brucellosis is a notifiable zoonotic disease affecting livestock, humans and wildlife in Uganda. Human brucellosis cases are frequently reported and the increasing incidence is suggestive of increasing disease in the livestock population. Pigs are among the livestock species that can be infected with human pathogenic Brucella suis biovars 1 and 3 and can be a significant source of brucellosis for humans. Uganda has a rapidly growing pig population and the pork consumption per capita is the highest in East Africa. The objective of this work was to determine the seroprevalence of brucellosis in Ugandan pigs.</p>
