Evaluation of MDA for schistosomiasis and STH in school-aged children in Bankass, Mali

In their newly published study, Moussa Sangare along with colleagues from the International Center for Excellence in Research Mali (ICER-Mali) and Dermatology Hospital of Bamako assessed the coverage of the schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminths MDA campaign in Bankass in 2017. Coverage rates were 93.51% (1990/2128) for praziquantel and 95.25% (2027/2128) for albendazole. Among the untreated children, 31.63% (31/98) reported being unaware of the campaign and 26.53% (26/98) were unable to reach the distribution points. Most of the health workers (38.5%) suggested increasing incentives.
