Epidemiological risk in a focus of sleeping sickness in Cote d'Ivoire






Tropical Medicine and International Health 2(8): 729-732

Epidemiological risk in a focus of sleeping sickness in Cote d'Ivoire

An epidemiological risk index based solely on entomological factors can be used to identify regions which are at higher risk of transmission of trypanosomiasis within the endemic forest zones of Cote d'Ivoire, and can serve to point out biotopes to be treated to make antivector campaigns more effective.
