  • Knowledge, Awareness and Post-harvest Practices Predisposing Stored Maize
           to Aflatoxin Contamination in Morogoro Municipality and Makambako
           District, Tanzania

      Abstract: Aflatoxin contamination in maize by Aspergillus species negatively affects the quality of food, economy as well as human and animal health worldwide and is hence a globally growing public health problem. This study aimed at assessing knowledge and awareness on aflatoxins as well as post-harvest practices predisposing stored maize to aflatoxin contamination in Morogoro municipality and Makambako district, Tanzania. A semi-structured questionnaire was administered to 226 stakeholders who responded to questions assessing their knowledge and awareness on aflatoxins and practices predisposing stored maize to aflatoxin contamination. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 16.0 was conducted to determine the statistical significance of the practices predisposing stored maize to aflatoxin contamination by comparison of means among the study groups. Descriptive statistical analysis was employed to describe knowledge and awareness of aflatoxin contamination among respondents. The results based on the assessment criteria revealed that majority (71%) of the studied population in the study areas had low knowledge and awareness in relation to aflatoxin contamination on stored maize. The results also revealed that some aspects of post-harvest handling of maize including storage with other crops, mode of storage and storage duration positively influenced infestation of aflatoxigenic fungi on the maize stored. We recommend the provision of appropriate education via seminars and workshops to the respective stakeholders to help increase their knowledge and awareness on aflatoxin contamination.

  • Lassa Fever: An Emerging and Re-emerging Fatal Viral Disease of Public
           Health Concern

    • Authors: Mahendra Pal; Kirubel Paulos Gutama, Leena Gowda, Pratibha Dave
      Pages: 143 - 146
      Abstract: Lassa fever is a life threatening infectious zoonosis of public health significance, and is caused by a single-stranded, linear, bi-segmented RNA virus belonging to the Arenaviridae family. The disease is transmitted by rodents, particularly the Natal mastomys (Mastomys natalensis). In terms of public health impact, Lassa fever outperforms Ebola, Marburg, and all other hemorrhagic fevers except Dengue. Lassa fever is endemic in Benin, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria, although it is also thought to exist in other West African countries. Each year, it is thought to be responsible for up to 300,000 new infections and 5000 deaths in Western Africa. Lassa virus disease was named one of the world's top bio-threats by the global Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness (CEPI) in 2017. Humans are most typically infected through the ingestion or inhalation. Nosocomial infection is also noticed. Very recently, an outbreak of Lassa fever was confirmed in Togo. However, when symptomatic, fever, general malaise and weakness, headache, hemorrhaging (in the gums, eyes, or nose, for example), respiratory distress, frequent vomiting, face swelling, discomfort in the chest, back, and abdomen; and shock occur. Deafness is the most common complications of Lassa fever. The fatality rate in the hospitalized patients may reach 15 to 20 %. There are a variety of virus diagnostic techniques available, ranging from viral culture to serological and molecular diagnostic testing. There are currently no FDA-approved vaccinations for Lassa fever, and therapy options are exceedingly restricted. Early supportive care, such as rehydration and symptomatic treatment, improves survival prospects.
