  1. Detailed epidemiological mapping of three onchocerciasis foci in West Africa.

    Article - En anglais

    Detailed epidemiological mapping of three isolated foci of hyperendemic blinding onchocerciasis was undertaken in three West African countries as part of community trials of invermectin, a new microfilaricide for the treatment of human onchocerciasis.

    The results show that the geographical distribution of the prevalence and intensity of onchocerciasis infection in the community can be very different from what was expected on the basis of demographic and entomological information.
