Planning an eco-adventure?

Be Aware of Schistosomiasis describes the life cycle of the Schistosoma trematode flatworm, a parasite transmitted by snails living in fresh water such as lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. It also outlines infection transmission patterns, vector information, and preventive measures.

This whitepaper is a companion publication to IAMAT's World Schistosomiasis Risk Chart, also available from the eLibrary.
