Population dynamics of schistosomes in co-endemic areas of Schistosoma haematobium and Schistosoma mansoni in the North region of Cameroon: implication in the control of the disease

Research question

- Can the co-endemicity of S. mansoni and S. haematobium in the north region of Cameroon induce a modification of the genetic structure of the parasites?
- Can the co-endemicity of S. mansoni and S. haematobium in the north region of Cameroon has an impact to the control of the disease through preventive chemotherapy?
