In this unique book, Ukoli explores the main issues to be confronted in the formulation of policies and implementation of preventive and control measures against parasitic diseases in tropical Africa. The high prevalence of parasitic diseases, along with poverty, hunger and squalor, is an indisputable index of underdevelopment and a reliable indicator for assessing the health profile of the less developed countries of tropical Africa. However, though the fundamental principles of the various preventive and control measures are common knowledge, they do not seem to be yielding the desired results in tropical Africa. The provision of safe water and improvement of general sanitation which are fundamental to freedom from parasitic disease, along with other measures, are frustrated by acute financial, infrastructural and manpower contraints. Ukoli examines the implications of these issues and their socio-cultural and socio-economic impact in this fascinating study.

Eine wahre Indiana-Jones-Geschichte - eine archäologische Sensation Schon seit dem 16. Jahrhundert gab es Gerüchte über eine Provinz im Regenwald von Honduras, deren Städte reich und prachtvoll seien, ganz besonders die Weiße Stadt, auch Stadt des Affengottes genannt. Immer wieder machten sich Abenteurer und Archäologen auf die Suche nach den Zeugnissen dieser Zivilisation, die offenbar nicht zu den Mayas gehörte. Manchmal stießen sie tatsächlich auf Ruinen, aber eine wirkliche Erforschung war in dem von giftigen Schlangen und tödlichen Krankheitserregern verseuchten und vom Dschungel überwucherten Gelände unmöglich. Erst die moderne Lasertechnik, mit deren Hilfe das Gelände aus der Luft gescannt wird, ermöglichte genauere Hinweise, wo sich größere Ansiedlungen befinden. Um sie vor Ort zu untersuchen muss man sich allerdings auch heute noch auf den beschwerlichen Weg durch den Dschungel machen. Der Schriftsteller und Journalist Douglas Preston schloss sich kürzlich einer archäologischen Expedition an. Sie fand tatsächlich die eindrucksvollen Ruinen einer untergegangenen Stadt, aber sie zahlte am Ende auch einen hohen Preis.
