WHO Guidelines on Tularaemia provides background information on the disease, describes the current best practices for its diagnosis and treatments in humans, suggests measures to be taken in case of epidemics and provides guidance on how to handle F. tularensis in the laboratory.

Tularaemia is a bacterial zoonotic disease of the northern hemisphere.

The bacterium (Francisella tularensis) is highly virulent for humans and a range of animals such as rodents, hares and rabbits.

Humans can infect themselves by direct contact with infected animals, by arthropod bites, by ingestion of contaminated water or food, or by inhalation of infective aerosols.
