dc.description.abstractWith the aim of developing schistosomiasis health education programmes through primary health care, water contact activities were studied in two large villages in Menoufia Governorate. In 1994, an in-depth epidemiological study performed on a calculated sample of households revealed that certain water contact activities [‎grain washing, irrigation, ablution]‎ resulted in higher schistosomiasis infection rates than others. The irrigation system used appeared to be significantly related to the infection rate. Health education and community participation in schistosomiasis control via primary health care are recommendedEN
