    About This Project

    Urogenital schistosomiasis is a snail-borne infection having a huge socioeconomic impact on underserved communities of sub-Saharan Africa. The disease affects the urinary and genital systems and causes chronic complications such as anemia, bladder cancer, infertility and other gynaecological problems. Communities around water bodies in Kano State suffer from infection, suggesting the need for community-based sustainable interventions to reduce disease morbidities and block further transmission.
