Class Information




In Mongolia, there are few scientific data on prevalence and characterization on foodborne diseases and their causative agents, such as brucellosis, campylobacteriosis, enterohemorrhagic E coli infection and listeriosis, as well as antimicrobial resistant bacteria in animals. In this program, in cooperation with hygiene sector(s), veterinary school in Mongolia and JICA, we will analyze the prevalence of foodborne disease and characterize the causative agents including antimicrobial resistance. The activities will be carried out in cooperation with the counterparts in Mongolia. Aim of this program is to contribute to capacity building of counterpart as well as the progression of the control measures of foodborne diseases in Mongolia.
