Table 5 Predicted mean prevalence by matrices A-C for dataset 3 (cross-sectional Ugandan data)

From: Development and evaluation of a Markov model to predict changes in schistosomiasis prevalence in response to praziquantel treatment: a case study of Schistosoma mansoni in Uganda and Mali

  Low intensity (predicted mean prevalence and 95 % CI) Moderate intensity (predicted mean prevalence and 95 % CI) High intensity (predicted mean prevalence and 95 % CI) Overall prevalence (predicted mean prevalence and 95 % CI)
