Excerpt
Schistosomiasis remains one of the main parasitic diseases affecting the populations of developing countries. Although new tools for the control of the disease have become available over the past decades, their wide-scale implementation remains difficult in many countries due to budgetary and operational constraints. The main challenge is thus to develop structures and strategies to apply and target the available tools in the most cost-effective, feasible and sustainable way. To that end, adequate knowledge and understanding of the epidemiological factors that govern the dynamics of transmission and morbidity, and of the impact of control measures on them, are critical. Major advances have recently been made in understanding the biology and immunology of infection, but basic information on some epidemiological determinants remains incomplete.
