Draws attention to the serious and growing public health problem posed by foodborne trematode infections. These infections, which affect an estimated 40 million persons, are linked to several serious diseases, including cholangiocarcinoma in Opisthorchis infections, cholangiocarcinoma and gall stone in Clonorchis infection, and severe clinical liver disease in Fasciola infection. Infection is acquired via the consumption of raw or inadequately processed freshwater fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. Awareness of the magnitude of suffering and disease caused by foodborne trematode infections has increased dramatically following recent changes in Eastern Europe, where millions of people are now known to be infected with Opisthorchis and where cholangiocarcinoma is the leading cause of hepatic cancer. The misdiagnosis of tuberculosis in persons suffering from paragonimiasis poses yet another public health problem of growing concern. The book, which has three parts, aims to assemble all the practical and technical information needed to develop effective strategies for control. The first part presents basic information about foodborne trematode infections, their modes of transmission, and the methods available for control. Also included is the first detailed analysis of the geographical distribution of foodborne trematode infections. The second part provides a state-of-the-art review of what is known about the clinical features of these diseases, patterns of morbidity and mortality, the parasites, and their intermediate snail hosts. The final part summarizes country experiences in the epidemiology and control of foodborne trematode infections

Control of human african trypanosomiasis: a strategy for the African Region: report of the Regional Director
Regional Committee for Africa, 55 ( 2011-06-23 )

1. Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) is caused by trypanosomes that are transmitted by the tsetse fly. HAT is the only vector-borne parasitic disease with a geographical distribution limited to the African continent. Populations in the age group 15-45 years living in remote rural areas are the most affected, leading to economic loss and social misery. 2. In the early 1960s, the prevalence of HAT had been reduced to very low levels (prevalence rate less than one case per 10 000 inhabitants). Unfortunately, due to lack of regular surveillance activities and reduced resource allocation to HAT as well as changing health priorities and nonavailability of drugs, the disease has been neglected. 3. During the 1980s and 1990s, considerable progress was made in the development or improvement of epidemiological tools suitable for HAT control; however, these were not sufficiently used in the field. All this led to the resurgence of the disease in areas where it was previously controlled, reaching epidemic levels in some instances. WHO estimates are that infected individuals number between 300 000 and 500 000.
