The most common diseases in this region are schistosomiasis, the malarias, yaws, goitre, intestinal worms, the dysenteries, the filariases, traumatic injuries, and pulmonary, bone, and skin diseases. Smallpox is the most common of the infectious diseases. Spraying, ditching, and cutting back vegetation are done in an attempt to limit the habitat of the pathogens and vectors.
