Gaps and barriers in interventions for the control of soil-transmitted helminthiasis among school-age children in an endemic area of the Philippines: a school-based point-of-view


Intestinal worms remain a major problem among schoolchildren in the Philippines. Several control strategies are being conducted in school for years. We have identified the gaps and barriers in interventions for intestinal worms elimination and we found important inputs in 20 schools from an endemic area.


Here, we discussed the strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats if various intestinal worms control strategies in school.
