Description

Taenia solium taeniosis/cysticercosis is a neglected zoonotic parasitic disease complex with significant economic and public health impacts, occurring primarily in developing countries. There is an urgent need to determine whether either control or elimination is the best option, how to reach these goals and assess their cost effectiveness, in a highly endemic area in the Eastern Province of Zambia.
