Abstract

The southern region of Israel is populated by a mostly urban Jewish majority (population: 385,200 inhabitants) and a large seminomadic Bedouin minority (population: 188,900) who maintains herds of sheep and goats.

A retrospective study was conducted to assess the impact of the 1997 decision to discontinue a veterinarian control campaign on the epidemiology of human brucellosis in the region.
