Rural Africana1981; (8/9): 5-20



The paper sets out the basic research agenda of the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, an international effort to further the understanding and control of six specified diseases that influence rural people throughout the Third World. Explanations of human roles in disease occurrence, the consequences of the selected diseases, methods of disease control (especially those revolving around human behaviour), and roles for social science research are all considered.
