Introduction: TheCrimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a viral disease causing severe haemorrhagic fever outbreaks and is transmitted to healthy peopleeither by tick bites or through contact with infected animal blood or tissues during and immediately after slaughter. Most infected cases are reported to be among livestock industry and slaughterhouse workers. The present paper aims toevaluate the effect of CCHF on the awareness and functioning of the Livestock Producers and Slaughterhouse Workers in Shustar, Iran in the time span from April 2014 to March 2015.
Method: For this semi-experimental study, samples were taken among livestock industry and slaughterhouse workers in the city of Shustar (40 livestock farmers and 160 slaughterhouse workers) by Stratified Random Sampling. Study tools included questionnaires and function observation checklists, both before and after training. First, the before-training questionnaires and checklists were completed. Then sample subjects were trained about CCHF and its prevention and transmission. A month after training, sample subjects completed after-training questionnaires and checklists. The statistical software SPSS, discriptive statistics methods including average, standard deviation, minimum and maximum scores, frequency and percentage, and also inferential statistics methods such as correlated t-test and Kolmogorov-Smirnoff test were used to analyze data.
Results: findings of this study showed a significant difference between the awareness of CCHF among personnel before and after training (p= 0.001, t=7.4). Also, there is a significant difference in their functioning and attitude toward CCHF among them before and after training (p=0.001, t=11.95).
Conclusion: Results and analyzed data reveals that the training program leads to higher awareness of CCHF among livestock industry and slaughterhouse workers and, therefore, is effective. So the training program has been effective in increasing awareness and behaviour changing among livestock industry and slaughterhouse workers.

Keywords: Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), training of CCHF, training effect, awareness, functioning.
