1. Seropositivity rates of zoonotic pathogens in small ruminants and associated public health risks at informal urban markets in Zambia.

Informal livestock markets are an important source of animal-derived proteins for growing urban populations in countries such as Zambia. In parallel, they can also constitute pathways of zoonotic pathogen transmission to humans. This risk is aggravated by limited disease monitoring and poor control ...
