Abstract:

Research progressed on the causes of fevers of unknown origin, leishmaniasis and mosquito larval ecology. New initiatives included investigations of outbreaks of hepatitis and gastroenteritis. Manuscripts on gastroenteritis and hepatitis were-prepared and submitted for presentation and publication. Suspected cases of tick-borne fever in an archaeological team were investigated. Five USUHS medical students conducted research and obtained clinical experience in Belize. Three Belizean physicians entered USUHS MPH and MTM and H graduate programs. ERC personnel attended two International scientific meetings, received formal training in three courses and presented research data at four medical meetings in Belize.
