Figure 6

Three-dimensional graph of mean community level of infection, over time, as a function of the reproductive fitness of resistant parasites during an ongoing control program in which 50% of infected patients are treated each year. Limited fitness of resistant parasites (<0.6) delays or severely limits the reemergence of parasite infection intensity.
