Brucellosis is rarely transmitted from person to person directly. Breastfeeding mothers may transmit the infection to their babies. It is also reported that it may be transmitted sexually. However, if a baby or person at risk are treated from brucellosis, the risk of infection will be probably eliminated within three days. Although it is not often, transmission can happen through transplantation of an infected tissue. 

Although brucellosis can be found all over the world, it is very often in the countries that do not have good standard programs of public and animal health. The areas that are at high risk are the countries of the Mediterranean basin (Portugal, Spain, Southern France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, North Africa), South and Central America, Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.

Brucellosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria of the genus Brucella. These bacteria are primarily transmitted among the animals and cause the disease in many different vertebrates.
