Free Content Control of cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania major in south‐eastern Morocco

Download Article:
The incidence of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) caused by Leishmania major has increased in Morocco over the last decade, prompting the Ministry of Health to take intersectoral response measures including vector and reservoir control. The aim of this article was to describe the CL outbreak response measures taken in the province of Errachidia, where the reservoir of L. major, a sand rat (Meriones shawi), was targeted using strychnine‐poisoned wheat baits from 2010 to 2012.
