dc.description.abstractA schistosomiasis prevalence and intensity survey was carried out among school children in selected residential suburbs of Harare. Urine and stool specimens were collected for determination of schistosomiasis infection from 2 552 children aged between five and 15 years. A total of 351 (13,7 pc) school children were found to be infected with Schistosoma haematobium while 172 (6,7 pc) pupils were found to be positive for S. mansoni. The arithmetic mean egg count (AMEC) for S. haematobium was 16 while that for S. mansoni was 7,6 figures much lower than those found among school children in rural areas.en
