dc.description.abstractOne of the major problems facing the health service in any country which has a high prevalence of bilharziasis is the shortage of medical personnel required for the successful treatment of the large numbers of people who show infection. However, if a totally safe regime involving the administration of relatively innocuous drug at low dosages over long periods of time to control or suppress the level of infection in the person, the administration of the drug could then be left to the teachers or to other responsible members of the community. It is in this context that the policy of suppressive therapy or management of schistosome infections shows its greatest attraction.en_GB
