MARQUEZ JACA, Sergio et al. Risk of brucellosis in human being. A design of a system of disease surveillance. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp.107-123. ISSN 1561-3194.

Brucellosis is a zoonosis that is directly or indirectly transmitted to human being from reservoir of animals, and it is considered an occupational disease. Aimed at stratifying the risk of brucellosis to design a system of disease surveillance a research of technological innovation was carried out in two stages from 2009-2010 in San Cristobal. During the first stage the stratification of brucellosis risk was completed; designing the system of disease surveillance on the second stage. Units of analysis were constituted from the total of animals belonging to the state sector in the municipality, from which the locality obtains foodstuffs (meat, milk and products), as for the population and the totality of employees exposed to the risk of this infectious disease. Brucellosis is a very important health problem among the great mass of animals, having an effect on bovines (mainly buffalos) and porcine, all of them foodstuffs of the population. "Jose Marti" Township Council and Lopez Peña town are the principal zones where the population is at epidemiological risk. A system of disease surveillance, together with veterinary medicine will guarantee the control of the disease within animals and people.
