Safe Food, Fair Food for Cambodia - Prevalence of the zoonotic diseases cysticercosis and trichinellosis among pigs in rural Cambodia




Cysticercosis and trichinellosis are important parasitic zoonoses that are expected to be endemic among pigs in Southeast Asia. Both can lead to serious illnesses in humans. In Cambodia, the majority of pigs are raised extensively, a potential risk factor for both diseases. Pork is the most importance source of meat and risky consumption habits may exist.. While sporadic outbreaks in humans have been reported, data in pigs are scarce.
