Gift Clean Water

Also known as “snail fever”, schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease carried by fresh water snails. It is one of the most widespread tropical diseases in the world after malaria, affecting more than 249 million people globally, including 100 million children.

The disease poses a huge health burden in developing countries, especially in Africa where more than 90% of the infections occur.

A lack of sufficient hygiene and activities such as swimming or fishing in infested water make school-aged children especially vulnerable to infection. The disease is also more common in poor communities without adequate access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Prevention goes a long way towards addressing the problem. Yet only 27% of the 10.8 million people in Tanzania who require preventive treatment for schistosomiasis received it in 2014.
