Influence of livestock husbandry on schistosomiasis transmission in mountainous regions of Yunnan Province.
An investigation was conducted in the highly endemic areas of schistosomiasis japonica in Weishan and Eryuan counties, Yunnan Province.
The results are summarized as follows :
1) the number of domestic animals was increasing annually ; 2) the proportion of animal husbandry gains in the total agriculture income had a yearly escalating tendency ; 3) the infection rate of inhabitants was upgrading as a result of the development of and the prevalence in domestic animals in the recent decades.
Owing to frequent migration of domestic animals, serious spread of infection sources and high prevalence of schistosomiasis japonica occurred.
It is suggested that more attention should be paid to the control of schistosomiasis japonica in mountainous endemic regions during the course of economic development, especially in the development of domestic animals.
