Background: Brucellosis is a bacterial infection mostly transmitted by animals to humans; thus, consideration of sanitary instances is an important preventive method for this disease. Therefore, we designed a study in order to reduce the rate of brucellosis in Baneh County, Kurdistan Province, Iran.

Materials and Methods: The sources of data were the medical documents of patients diagnosed in health centers and private laboratories during 2011–2012. Data were analyzed using SPSS software, and chi-square and t-test) P > 0.05). In addition, in the second section of the research, data on all brucellosis patients and experts were used to design an intersectional preventive interventions model for this county.

Results: A total of 135 brucellosis patients were surveyed in this study during 2011-2012, and a total of 80 experts participated in this research. It was found that 43 patients (31.9%) lived in the city and 92 of them (68.1%) lived in a village; and 71 of them (52%) were men and 64 (48%) were women. The most common way of incurring the disease was drinking non-boiled milk [42 (31.11%)]. Moreover, 100% of the patients and 100% of the experts believed that intersectional intervention is the best prevention method for brucellosis.

Conclusions: Considering the results, it can be concluded that the intersectional intervention with unique management is the best way for reducing the incidence and prevalence rate of brucellosisin in Baneh County.
