Solid progress in the Onchocerciasis Control Programme in the Volta River Basin area



Solid progress in the Onchocerciasis Control Programme in the Volta River Basin area



WHO Chronicle 32(3): 127-128



Results obtained by the Onchocerciasis Control Programme (OCP) in the Volta River Basin and presented at the 4th session of the Joint Coordinating Committee of OCP in December 1977 in Kuwait are reported. In 1977, larviciding was extended for the first time to the whole of the 700,000 km2 OCP area. In some areas sprayed since 1974, the absence of Simulium enabled larviciding to be interrupted for as much as 5 to 17 weeks at a time.
