Abstract
Background
Taenia solium, a zoonotic infection transmitted between humans and pigs, is considered an emerging infection in Sub-Saharan Africa, yet individual and community-level factors associated with the human infection with the larval stages (cysticercosis) are not well understood.
This study aims to estimate the magnitude of association of individual-level and
village-level factors with current human cysticercosis in 60 villages located in three Provinces of Burkina Faso.
