Understanding Bartonella: A One Health Perspective Webinar
Approximately 75% of emerging infectious diseases affecting humans are zoonotic (transmitted from animals to humans). Vectors (e.g., fleas, ticks, lice, biting flies, etc.) play an important role in transmitting zoonotic infections. Individuals at high-risk of acquiring Bartonella infection include those who work or live with animals, or those with high exposure to fleas, ticks, lice and biting flies. Stealth infections such as bartonellosis are increasingly implicated in complex chronic disease syndromes, yet are extremely difficult to diagnose accurately.
