Abstract:The occurrence of many diseases such as schistosomiasis could be dramatically reduced if people had adequate access to clean water and sanitation. To improve control of S. haematobium transmission, I propose that control measures targeting snails (mollusciciding and environmental modification) and humans (chemotherapy, behavior modification, latrines) be applied based on infection patterns and hydrological connectivity.
