Use of remote sensing and a geographical information system in a national helminth control programme in Chad

et al

Expand view

The study designed and implemented a rapid and valid epidemiological assessment of helminths among schoolchildren in Chad using ecological zones defined by remote sensing satellite sensor data and to investigate the environmental limits of helminth distribution. The conclusion is that GIS and remote sensing can play an important part in the rapid planning of helminth control programmes where little information on disease burden is available.
