Coendemicity in Burundi after results obtained from mapping surveys performed in 2007–2010. Colours and patterns indicate presence of disease in cases of onchocerciasis or prevalence of TF below 10% (low) or above ≥10% (high) in cases of trachoma. For schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminth infections, colours and patterns indicate disease prevalence, which was estimated via predictive risk maps created with the epidemiological and geospatial integrated approach. In detail, for schistosomiasis, low, moderate, and high indicate prevalence <10%, between 10% and 50%, and above 50%, respectively. For soil-transmitted helminth infections, low, moderate, and high indicate prevalence below 20%, between 20% and 50%, and above 50%, respectively. Abbreviations: Schisto, schistosomiasis; Oncho, onchocerciasis.
