NOTE- “Taeniasis in humans is a parasitic infection caused by the tapeworm species Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm), Taenia solium (pork tapeworm), and  Taenia asiatica (Asian tapeworm)” ... a zoonotic disease


It is a great pleasure to share with you the online OpenWHO training course “Toolbox for the control and management of Taenia solium:

The course covers all aspects of T. solium  including its control using a One Health approach and management of (neuro)cysticercosis as a “one-stop shop” with up-to-date policy and technical information which will be updated periodically.  All resources are downloadable.  The target audiences are the T. solium focal points and programme managers, as well as anyone interested in the control of the T. solium.
