  1. Schistosomiasis in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iraq.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence of schistosomiasis, a parasitic infestation caused by trematodes, or flukes, has decreased significantly in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries.

    The education of people in the countryside is a primary reason.

    The water supply in these countries is now good, and, in most areas, women no longer use the stagnant river tributaries for washing clothes.

    Medications, which can be used to prevent the infection or kill the parasite include praziquante and metrifonate.
