Most data and evidence on the economic burden of brucellosis and the benefits of its control are from high-income and middle-income countries. However, the burden of brucellosis is greatest in low-income countries. This paper focuses on estimating the economic burdens of brucellosis in low-income countries in tropical Asia and Africa. The prospects for national, technically feasible, and economically viable, national brucellosis control programmes in most low-income countries are limited… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Bovine brucellosis: prevalence, risk factors, economic cost and control options with particular reference to India- a review
TLDR
In the absence of highly effective vaccines and because of difficulties in executing a segregation and slaughter policy of infected animals in countries like India, control of bovine brucellosis remains a challenge.
Importance of brucellosis control programs of livestock on the improvement of one health
TLDR
According to the collected data, epidemiological contexts including management and trade systems along with well-defined agro-ecological zones should be evaluated in brucellosis endemic countries to improve milk production and to enhance the sustainability of the livestock sector at both national and regional levels.
Narrative overview of animal and human brucellosis in Morocco: intensification of livestock production as a driver for emergence?
TLDR
A One Health approach could address brucellosis control in Morocco but scarcity of reliable epidemiological data, as well as underreporting, hinders the implementation of sustainable control strategies.
Brucellosis as an Emerging Threat in Developing Economies: Lessons from Nigeria
TLDR
There appears to be an increasing risk of re-emergence of brucellosis in sub-Saharan Africa, as a result of the co-existence of pastoralist movements and the increase of intensive management resulting from growing urbanization and food demand.
Socio-economic impacts of brucellosis on livestock production and reproduction performance in Koibatek and Marigat regions, Baringo County, Kenya
TLDR
Even though there was a huge socio-economic impact on milk production, infertility, sale value, and dowry, it was the costs of treatment that was significantly impacted on all symptoms associated with brucellosis on this community.
Evaluation of the economic impact of brucellosis in domestic yaks of Tibet
TLDR
Estimates of the economic cost and economic value of three control strategies for brucellosis in yaks in China establish a foundation for formulating and implementing cost-effective measures for controlling the disease on the Tibetan plateau, and more broadly in China.

TLDR
If the costs of vaccination of livestock against brucellosis were allocated to all sectors in proportion to the benefits, the intervention might be profitable and cost effective for the agricultural and health sectors.
A One Health Framework for Estimating the Economic Costs of Zoonotic Diseases on Society
TLDR
An integrated epidemiological and economic framework for assessing zoonoses using a “one health” concept is presented to link the analysis outputs of animal and human disease transmission models, economic impact models and evaluation of risk management options to gain improved understanding of factors affecting the adoption ofrisk management strategies.

Variations in the prevalence of antibody to brucella infection in cattle by farm, area and district in Kenya
TLDR
Investigation for three contrasting districts in Kenya found older age, free grazing and large herd size were associated with higher seroprevalence, and a multi-level method provided additional information beyond conventional analyses of sero-prevalence data.
[Socioeconomic effects of human brucellosis].
TLDR
The socio-economic cost of human brucellosis, together with the high incidence of the disease throughout most of the national territory, clearly justify the need for aggressive preventive measures.
A method of accelerated eradication of bovine brucellosis in the Czech Republic.

TLDR
The eradication of bovine brucellosis was developed and applied in the Czech Republic and achieved within five years, without reducing the cattle population, the rate of cattle production, or the income of farmers, and resulted in an increase in cattle production and trade.
Socioeconomic effects of human brucellosis
TLDR
The socio-economic cost of human brucellosis, together with the high incidence of the disease throughout most of the national territory, clearly justify the need for aggressive preventive measures.
