Acta Biomedica Scientifica
The article presents the comparative analysis of the incidence of diphyllobothriasis in the Siberian Federal District and the Irkutsk Region, and the peculiarities of its epidemiology in the Irkutsk Region. On the basis of in-depth study of the structure of diphyllobothriasis foci functioning on the territory of Irkutsk Region, the zoning of the territory was carried out according to the degree of risk of contamination with diphyllobothriidae. The categories of the population of various age
... of various age groups exposed to invasion is defined, and dynamics of morbidity within groups is analyzed. The analysis revealed a distinctive feature of the Irkutsk Region, which is expressed in a greater proportion of children among the sick people compared to other regions of the Siberian Federal District and the lowest incidence reduction rates among this group. The question of reorientation of preventive and explanatory work with the population, taking into account the identified data, is raised. The cases are also considered on the basis of belonging to the rural or urban population; among the rural population, the incidence is almost twice as high. The analysis of morbidity in some territories of the Irkutsk Region was carried out on the basis of an integral indicator, which was carried out by ranking individual territories according to the degree of infection of the population, areas with low, medium, high and very high levels of morbidity were allocated.
