Social and behavioral factors in transmission and response to shigellosis.
Symposium on invasive diarrheas, shigellosis, and dysentery. Bangkok (THA), 1988-12-07.
Biomedical approaches to shigellosis tend to emphasize unique etiologic and clinical features of the disease, e.g., those related to the development of vaccines or case management.
The biologic characteristics of the organism and sociocultural responses to it imply that it is unlikely that a purely technologic solution (vaccine) to shigellosis will be found soon.
Infrastructural development (protected water supply and sanitary disposal of feces) may be too expensive to be feasible due to the economic, environmental, and demographic conditions in developing countries.
