This paper aims to present the major significance of early diagnosis and treatment of brucellosis at a primary healthcare level, so as to prevent the risk to public health that may occur from the spread of the disease. It initially introduces the epidemiological features of the disease and information regarding the ways it spreads, as well as its symptomatology, diagnosis and treatment. It then focuses on preventive measures to stop the wide-scale spread of brucellosis, mainly in Greece. Finally, it refers to the cost and effectiveness of these measures in practice and analyses the conclusions.
