RAP 4 articles are published
RAP 4 examined the literature to determine and compare the efficacy of niclosamide application for intermediate host snail control in Schistosoma-endemic areas. We have completed and published a scoping historical review of the perceived pros and cons of this approach, including a list of the technical inputs required to deliver snail control (see King and Bertsch). A second article, published December 2015 in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, provides a quantitative meta-analysis of the reported impact of molluscicide-based snail control programs on Schistosoma incidence and prevalence among local human populations (see King, Sutherland, and Bertsch).
