MWANG'ONDE, Beda J; NKWENGULILA, Gamba  e  CHACHA, Mwita. The risk factors for human cysticercosis in Mbulu District, Tanzania. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2014, vol.81, n.2, pp. 1-5. ISSN 2219-0635.

The objective of this study was to explore the reasons for the persistence of human cysticercosis (HCC) transmission in Mbulu District, northern Tanzania. The study was carried out in 25 villages, whereby five major risks were identified. The risks were indiscriminate defaecation and improper use of toilets; a free-range system of keeping pigs; indiscriminate or unregulated slaughtering and inadequate meat hygiene and inspection; consumption of undercooked and porcine cysticerci infected pork; and social structure and roles. All of the identified risks were backed up by the immanent lifestyles of the community involved. These findings are important for the development of intervention strategies in the study area.
