Global Prevention and Control of Select Agent Brucella Species

This project seeks to build country capacity for: estimating disease burden in both humans and animals, describing important risk factors associated with disease transmission, and implementing prevention and control measures like laboratory surveillance and vaccine implementation. Additionally, this project will: 1) develop standard operating procedures and guidelines for appropriate livestock surveillance and safe sample collection, transportation and storage for Brucella specimens; 2) training of animal laboratories on biosafety and biosecurity when working with Brucella species, molecular diagnostic techniques, and sub-typing of circulating Brucella species from animal specimens; 4) counsel public health agencies on developing clinical treatment guidelines for human brucellosis infection, and assist in educating clinicians on appropriate diagnostic practices; and 5) conduct in-country assessments to determine national-level laboratory capacity and infrastructure, including biosafety and biosecurity, for brucellosis animal testing.
