Spatial heterogeneity of parasite co-infection: Determinants and geostatistical prediction at regional scales

Brooker, S; Clements, Archie

Description

Multiple parasite infections are widespread in the developing world and understanding their geographical distribution is important for spatial targeting of differing intervention packages. We investigated the spatial epidemiology of mono- and co-infection with helminth parasites in East Africa and developed a geostatistical model to predict infection risk. The data used for the analysis were taken from standardised school surveys of Schistosoma mansoni and hookworm (Ancylostoma...[Show more]
