Bilarizia
We are working in an area of Madagascar known for bilharzia in the water. We are planning to get our camp water from a river and treat the water by filtration. Is there a surefire recommended treatment for water in an area known for this parasite?

thank you

Dear Malcolm

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

A surefire would be to boil the water.
