Guidelines for Analysis of Communicable Disease Control Planning in Developing Countries. Volume 1: Communicable Diseases Control Planning. International Health Planning Methods Series.
Intended to assist Agency for International Development (AID) officers, advisors, and health officials in incorporating health planning into national plans for economic development, this first of ten manuals in the International Health Planning Methods Series deals with planning and evaluation of communicable disease control programs. The first four articles provide an overview of the subject and discuss specific aspects of the programs, such as program organization, surveillance systems, and immunization projects. Ten articles on specific diseases and disease types discuss malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, veneral disease, filariasis, schistosomiasis, onchocerciasis, trachoma, bacterial enteric diseases, parasitic enteric diseases, and rabies. The papers outline the complexities of epidemiogologic interactions between disease-causing organisms, their reservoirs, and hosts in different geographic, climatologic, and cultural settings. (A supporting document in the International Health Reference Series containing a literature review and annotated bibliography is available separately as CE 024 223.) (YLB)
