Background: The results presented here are part of a five-year cluster-randomised intervention trial that was implemented to understand how best to gain and sustain control of schistosomiasis through different preventive chemotherapy strategies. This paper presents baseline data that were collected in ten districts of Cabo Delgado province, northe...

Background In Mozambique, schistosomiasis is highly endemic across the whole country. The Schistosomiasis Consortium for Operational Research and Evaluation (SCORE) coordinates a five-year study that has been implemented in various African countries, including Mozambique. The overall goal of SCORE was to better understand how to best apply preventi...
Data
Spatial clusters of high prevalence villages calculated in SatScan. Spatial clusters of high prevalence villages calculated in SatScan show a decrease in the number of disease clusters from baseline (Year 1) to Year 5, and the spatial extent of disease became less scattered over time. Each point represents an individual village whereby all communit...
Data
Summary of S. haematobium infection rates for each study year and study arm (9-to-12-year-old cross section only). Village-level S. haematobium prevalence, prevalence of heavy infection, and mean intensity for each study year from baseline to Year 5, by study arm among 9-12-year old cross section only. (TIFF)
Data
Prevalence of S. haematobium by individual villages over time by study arm. Prevalence of S. haematobium by individual villages, shown by different coloured points, over time by study arm. The black line is the mean village prevalence, by study arm, at each year. In treatment holidays shown in Arms 3, 5 and 6, there was no data collected and theref...

Background The Schistosomiasis Consortium for Operational Research and Evaluation (SCORE) focus is on randomized trials of different approaches to mass drug administration (MDA) in endemic countries in Africa. Because their studies provided an opportunity to evaluate the effects of mass treatment on Schistosoma-associated morbidity, nested cohort s...

... This information reinforces the idea of Njiokou et al. [16] according to which, urbanization, the geographical context reduce transmission points and the creation of modern water points limits the frequency of human contact with water. Our findings adds to several studies conducted in SSA on the high prevalence of US among primary school children [17,18,19,20]. Among infested school children, 82.17% (106/129) had hematuria and 58.13% (75/129) had pain during urination (dysuria). ...
... This could be attributed to the high endemicity of schistosomiasis in the country, where they recorded a schistosomiasis prevalence of 84.4% [26]. The Schistosomiasis Consortium for Operational Research and Evaluation (SCORE) in 2011 coordinated a five-year study that was implemented in various African countries [64]. The goal of the SCORE project was to research integrated strategies that might stop transmission and achieve elimination. ...
