River Blindness Incidence Reduced With Effective Treatment

frica in order to assess Ivermectin effects and to determine the importance of onchocerciasis. Results are highly conclusive in this case: onchocerciasis prevalence before treatment was of 74.5%, and after treatment, 38.4%. Furthermore, we want to underline that after Ivermectin administration, the incidence of onchocerciasis in children aged 0-4 decreased 2.6 times.

The follow-up of this project created more than a decade ago by Dr. Jordi Mas continues to be in force by the Ministry of Health of Equatorial Guinea. Nevertheless, the monitoring of the state of the disease is conducted by the Catalan group from Barcelona and Bioko.

Future strategies of the fight against river blindness go further than the administration of Ivermectin. Currently, the vector of the disease is being eliminated by the WHO African Program for Onchocerciasis (APOC). Dr. Jordi Mas will soon travel to Bioko in order to test the effects of the new measures. The efficiency of these methods, the operation of the project, along with the results of the studies of the Hospital Clínic Group will be assessed in the near future in a joint meeting with the Ministry of Health of Equatorial Guinea, the WHO and Dr. Jordi Mas.
