The national schistosomiasis and soil transmitted helminthes control program in Burkina Faso implements mass drug treatment for underserved communities at risk for schistosomiasis since 2004. Urinary schistosomiaisis is endemic in all the districts of the country but intestinal schistosomiasis is restricted to the Dafra district in the Western province. We reviewed data collected in the village of Panamasso in the Dafra district from 2008 to 2012. The village is located in a humid area with high level of rainfalls favoring and sustaining ponds and small perennial water bodies.
