Makerere University School of Public Health conducted a 2nd national survey of schistosomiasis in Uganda.  Findings from this survey will be disseminated at a breakfast meeting to be held on Tuesday, June 5th 2018 at the Serena Hotel-Kampala from 7.00am -10:30am. 

This survey was conducted together with the Vector Control Division at the Ministry of Health with support from the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health. The Uganda Bureau of Statistics provided technical support that included the identification of a representative sample of enumeration areas to conduct the survey.

The aims of the survey were to collect Nationally representative data from October-December 2017, from households to measure National prevalence estimates of Schistosomiasis infection among adults and children, determine the infection status one year after directly observed treatment with Praziquantel, determine knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding Schistosomiasis prevention, as well as relevant water, sanitation, and hygiene practices within the communities.  The findings will continue to contribute to the current Schistosomiasis control and prevention strategies undertaken by Ministry of Health and Partners.
