  1. Impact of the current national Bilharzia control programme on the epidemiology of schistosomiasis mansoni in an Egyptian village.

    Article - En anglais

    In a population-based study in the Nile Delta of Egypt, the modified Nato thick smear technique was used to study the epidemiology of Schistosoma mansoni.

    After 2 years of implementation of the National Bilharzia Control Programme by the Ministry of Health, the general prevalence dropped from 47.2% to 21.9%. The peak prevalence rate has shifted downwards in magnitude (40.4% compared to 72.1%) and backwards over the age scale (5-14 in contrast to 15-19 years age group).

    Redistribution of various infection grades has taken place.

    More than three-quarters (75.6%) of the infected individuals have light infections in contrast to only one-fifth (20%) 2 years ago.
