Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease transmissible from animals to man with nonspecific clinical manifestations. Global prevalence of Brucellosis in humankind is unknown. According to reports, prevalence of brucellosis, even in developed countries, may be 26 times as much as formal accounts. Disease occurs in children in endemic areas and then their family might be at risk of contamination. Even in developed counties in which the disease is under control, brucellosis can occur in farmers, workers who are in contact with meat, laboratory personnel, and slaughterhouses workers. To take into consideration the importance of brucellosis and its complications for humans and animals as well as its growing prevalence rate, we contacted this investigation to study the effect of education on the level of knowledge of Ganji village dwellers. The researcher hopes that education could prevent from occurrence of new cases of brucellosis as well as its financial disadvantages and threats to humans and animals life. Methods and Materials: This was a quasi- experimental study. Target population included ganji and its affiliated villages. A samples of 44 was chosen by simple random sampling method. Pretest was done by a questionnaire and then educational program was performed by lecture. The researcher then invited samples and the same questionnaire were used again. Finally, data analyzed was preformed. Results: The majority of participant were female (61.36%). The mean 44 mostly over 60 (29.54%) . Most of women were illiterate (68.18%). Women were mainly house – keeper and animal keeper (56.8%) and men were mainly farmer and animal – keeper. Most families had 5-9 members. Findings showed that before and after of instruction, 20% and 77% of participants answered the questions, respectively. Paired t-test showed significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores of participants (p<0.001). Conclusion: Finding of this study showed that before instruction the participants did not possess a reasonable level of knowledge about ways of transmission of brucellosis and its preventive measures and this might be the main couse of high prevalence of disease
