World Health Organization Onchocerciasis Control Programme in the Volta River basin



World Health Organization Onchocerciasis Control Programme in the Volta River basin



Blackflies: the future for biological methods in integrated control: 85-103



The Onchocerciasis Control Programme in the Volta river basin is reviewed with reference to its formulation, management, the area covered, the activities of the programme, entomological evaluation, control of Simulium damnosum, effects on the larval populations of the vector, effect on biting densities and transmission, the invasion problem, pathogens and parasites of blackflies, and aquatic monitoring.
