Existing records and/or history of medical conditions, clinical manifestations, or symptoms the respondents will be noted. They will also be evaluated for exposure to risk factors for toxoplasmosis. The presence or absence of the parasite will be determine through the antibody detection in sera. The study will be conducted using convinience sampling. At least 400 participants will be selected, and their blood samples will be collected by a licensed phlebotomist.
