    • Description:
      In the United States, approximately 5 to 15 people contract plague each year, mostly in rural areas. However, plague occurs more often in other parts of the world. In Uganda, approximately 2,000 people have had plague since 1999, with 84% of these cases occurring in women or children and multiple cases occurring in single households. Plague control efforts by the Uganda Ministry of Health (UMOH) have been limited due to lack of resources, such as laboratory confirmation capability, surveillance, and information about local environmental risk factors. The UMOH requested assistance from CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases (DVBID) to better understand plague in its communities.
