Project: Epidemiology and transmission dynamics of Schistosoma infections of the S.haematobium group in Mali, Senegal and Zambia.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- To study the transmission dynamics of the S.haematobium group, in particular the ecological and genetic factors determining focal levels of endemicity. To make detailed studies of the distribution and epidemiology of S.haematobium infection in foci in Mali including incidence studies after chemotherapy, and sero-epidemiological studies into "real prevalences and incidences". To study the factors determining endemicity levels.
