Resumen This paper explores some of the issues concerned with pesticide intoxication in the Third World and suggests some avenues of research likely to reduce the risk faced by exposed populations. The characteristics of several classes of pesticide are reviewed (organophosphate and carbamate insecticides, herbicides, organochlorinated pesticides, pyrethroids, botanical pesticides) along with reported health effects and results of toxicity studies. Legal aspects are also discussed along with application technologies, surveillance programmes and community participation, and risk factors related to the tropical climate.
