  1. Fulltext. The predicted and observed decline in onchocerciasis infection during 14 years of successful control of Simulium spp. in West Africa.

    Article - En anglais


    In 55 villages from the well-protected central area of the Onchocerciasis Control Programme in West Africa (OCP), skin snip surveys have been carried out at regular intervals since the programme started, and the latest round of surveys was undertaken after 12-14 years of successful vector control.

    The observated trends in the prevalence and intensity of onchocerciasis infection in cohorts of adults were compared with the trends predicted using a host-parasite model.

    After 12-14 years of control the community microfilarial load (CMFL) was close to zero in all villages.
