Improvements of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure and appropriate health-seeking behavior are necessary for achieving sustained control, elimination, or eradication of many neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Indeed, the global strategies to fight NTDs include provision of WASH, but few programs have specific WASH targets and approaches.(More)
BACKGROUND Access to "safe" water and "adequate" sanitation are emphasized as important measures for schistosomiasis control. Indeed, the schistosomes' lifecycles suggest that their transmission may be reduced through safe water and adequate sanitation.

The World Health Assembly resolution 65.21 from May 2012 urges member states to(More)
A description is given of the Intel i860 processor, which was designed for use in low-cost 3D graphics workstations. These products need high performance to support the operating system, simulations, transforms, and shading calculations. The integer unit provides high performance for Unix and other operating systems, the floating-point unit provides high(More)
The topic of multimedia is reviewed by discussing its various definitions. These definitions are used as a framework for examining the issues and problems encountered by multimedia systems. Hardware issues, nonsequential access, information programming, time programming, and new user interfaces are among the topics addressed.<<ETX>>
In the days when computer systems were used primarily by people with technical backgrounds, human factors, if considered at all, were treated as a backroom activity---something to be done after the design and implementation had been completed. We are now in an era in which computer hardware and software are consumer items. Computer users range from school(More)
