Progress in the control of schistosomiasis in Zimbabwe since 1984.
Cent Afr J Med. 1992 Aug; 38(8):316-21.CA

Abstract

Schistosomiasis remains the second most important parasitic disease in Zimbabwe. In terms of its combined morbidity and prevalence, schistosomiasis is thought to be the most important helminth infection of man. Since 1984, a number of control programmes have commenced around the country and a national control programme aimed at reducing morbidity is being implemented. The strategy adopted in Zimbabwe is a community based approach integrated in the primary health care system.
