Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.355
Pages: 
189–92
Synopsis: 
The characteristics of Leptospira interrogans are analysed and seroprevalence data regarding vectors in Grenada are then assessed from a secondary source. A literature review is then conducted into interventions which can best be suited to Grenada.
