    Much of the treatment is delivered through schools and targets school-age children. In , India had the largest public health intervention ever conducted in a single day, deworming 89 million schoolchildren during the Annual School Deworming Day. In some million children were said to be treated.   Parasitic worms (helminths) are common infections in low- and middle-income countries. For most helminth species, school-aged children are at highest risk of infection and morbidity, such as impaired cognitive and physical development. Preventive chemotherapy is the current mainstay for helminthiases control. Sanitation improvement and hygiene-related education are important .

      Background: Soil-transmitted helminths (STH) (Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and hookworm) are among the most prevalent neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in Ethiopia. Pre-school age children (PSAC) pay high morbidity toll associated with STH infections. Site specific operational evidence is lacking on prevalence, intensity and control strategies of STH among PSAC . In addition, WHO published a Russian translation of “Helminth control in school-age children: a guide for managers of control programmes”, and is continuing to make assessments of country-level problems and needs related to STH in Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Republic of Moldova and Romania.

    Trichuris trichiura is a metazoan parasite in the group of geohelminths, which means that transmission of eggs is often from contaminated soil. Gravid Trichuris trichiura females lay 3,, unembryonated eggs every day that are excreted in the host feces. Humans are the only known hosts of T. trichiura. Following excretion, fertilised Trichuris eggs will mature into an. Igho J. Onakpoya, in Side Effects of Drugs Annual, Drug Combination Studies. In a cross-sectional survey of school-age children, adverse events following co-administration of praziquantel and albendazole for prophylaxis against urogenital schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis were examined [47 C]. Reported adverse events were described as mild, transient, and no worse in.
