The Health Ministry held 130,000 workshops and educational sessions on Malta fever (Brucellosis) in the past year that ended in March for 1.8 million people across the country. “Last year, 10 provinces were screened for the disease, and residents were provided the necessary information,” said Mohammad Mahdi Gouya, director general of the Communicable Diseases Department at the ministry’s Center for Diseases Control and Prevention. This year, a memorandum of understanding has been signed with the Organization for Tribal and Rural Affairs, to develop better educational programs for the target population, reported. Brucellosis is reported more in the west and northwest provinces.
