MDA strategies: Sustaining control at 10 – 24% prevalence
(1) Is it possible to eliminate schistosomiasis as a public health problem on Unguja in three years and to interrupt transmission in five years? (2) Is it possible to control schistosomiasis throughout Pemba (prevalence <10%) in three years and to eliminate it as a public health problem in five years? (3) What are the costs, successful strategies, barriers, etc. associated with three different interventions (MDA, vector control, and behavior change)?
Comparison of 2X vs. 1X per year MDA on W. bancrofti with MDA of IVM/Alb, plus STH evaluation (and Schistosoma in Foya only)
