Brief Title

Women and Children as the Focus for Control of Schistosomiasis Infections in the Irrigations Area of Burkina Faso

Official Title

Women and Childres at the Focal Point for the Schistosomiasis Control and Sustainability and Effectiveness in the Hydro Agricultural Zone of Sourou, Burkina Faso

Brief Summary

      The purpose of this study is to examine the extent of schistosomasis infections in women and
      children, their daily activites that encumber contact with water and their knowledge and
      attitudes towards the prevention of schistosomiasis.

      The hypothesis that will be explored is that women and children spent more time with
      agricultural and household activities which bring them in contact with water and therefore
      give them an increased risk of being infected by schistosoma. Prevention and control of
      schistosomiasis has to be focusing on women and children.
