 en Schistosomiasis Control in the State of São Paulo
Carmen Moreno Glasser

Abstract

The program of schistosomiasis control for the State of São
Paulo, where only low endemicity areas occur, is discussed in this paper.
Inclusion of schistosomiasis among the diseases due to obligatory
notification is considered as a measure of great importance. Accordingly 
the search for passive cases conducted by the publich health system
acquired major importance in the disease surveillance. As from 1981 to 
1992 only 11%  of the detected cases were considered as autochthonous. 
The main transmission areas are located at the Litoral and Paraiba
Valley regions.

In the period of time under analysis, the epidemiological surveillance data suggest a decrease in the morbidity and in the autochthony tendency in the State of São Paulo.
