Focus is on reducing contact of people or of their domestic pigs with infected feces present in and around the rural household, by improving corraling and defecating behaviors, as well as on promoting improved careseeking behaviors of householders already infected with taenia or owning cysticercotic pigs. Much of this behavior change work is directly applicable to the control of any other viral, bacterial or parasitic disease passed around by infected human or animal feces.
