Abstract

Abstract.

is a common emerging pathogen in sub-Saharan Africa. Comparing dynamics of morbidities due to malaria and infections in two Senegalese villages, we found a strong and significant correlation between them. Malaria morbidity is strongly decreasing because of the implementation of long-lasting insecticidal nets, so we hypothesize that the same measure may decrease the infections.
