Access from EThOS:
A serological and questionnaire study on zoonoses was performed among cattle farms in Tanga, Tanzania. The study revealed that leptospirosis and other zoonoses are common in cattle in Tanga. Herd sero-prevalences were 58% for leptospirosis, 12% for brucellosis. 6% for tuberculosis and 12% for toxoplasmosis. Prevalence was higher in traditional herds than in smallholder herds. The zoonoses were not restricted to rural areas, but also occurred in urban and peri-urban areas, where livestock keeping is expanding.
