Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To evaluate the effect of schistosomiasis comprehensive control in Linxiang City.

METHODS

The data of the endemic situation and control measures of schistosomiasis in Linxiang City from 2004 to 2012 were collected and analyzed, so as to assess the effect of schistosomiasis comprehensive control.

RESULTS

Since 2005, a total of 14 610 household latrines improved, 9 782 biogas pools were built, 40.65 km river and river banks were protected, 809 cattle were eliminated, 23.30 hm2 pond were dug, 15.18 km ditches were hardened, 18.10 hm2 land were polished, more than 20 safe drinking water projects were constructed, and the beneficiary population reached 68 400 people. The human and cattle infection rate reduced from 2.07% and 3.95% in 2004 to 0.46% and 1.35% in 2012, with reduction rates of 77.78% and 65.82%, respectively. The living Oncomelania snail density and snail infection rate showed an overall decline tendency, which reduced from 0.114 4 snails/0.1 m2 and 0.19% in 2004 to 0.0 056 snails/0.1 m2 and 0 in 2012, with reduction rates of 95.10% and 100%, respectively.

CONCLUSION

The promotion and implementation of the schistosomiasis comprehensive control measures with emphasis on control of the source of infection control is the key to further expand the achievements of schistosomiasis control in Linxiang City.
