Experiences with mass chemotherapy in the control of schistosomiasis in Mali



Experiences with mass chemotherapy in the control of schistosomiasis in Mali



Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 39(2): 167-174



Mass chemotherapy using praziquantel in a single dose of 40 mg/kg was the main strategy of schistosomiasis control in Mali during the intervention phase. Treatment was applied either indiscriminately to all inhabitants over the age of 2 years in a given village, or as a case treatment to those found infected during a previous parasitological examination. In one study area, only children aged 5 to 15 years were treated.
