Experiences in Uganda demonstrate the usefulness of remote sensoring GIS or RS as geographic decision-making tools for implementing helminth control on both national and local scales. Frequency of regular treatment should vary according to the intensity of transmission and rates of re-infection.

Please review our privacy policy. Mem Inst Oswaldo Cruz. Sanitation factors such as the reliability of water supply, frequency of rubbish collection and proximity to overflowing or visible sewage are not under the control of individual households. These few heavily infected individuals are at a higher risk of disease and are also the prime source of environmental contamination.

Deworming for health and development. In accordance with theWHO[ 22 ], the recommended drugs for for use in public health interventions to control STH infections are:. In this situation, piped sewers are an appropriate solution, and it is questionable as to whether efforts should focus on systems based on onsite solutions, such as latrines.

Health education in community health has the same role as medical information and counseling given by the physician to the patient in clinical medicine.

In deprived communities, where sanitation is practically nonexistent and the prevalence and intensity of infection are high, a suitable infrastructure such as the school system or a national immunization day should be used to distribute at least regular treatment to the groups at risk.

Understanding the effects of printed health education materials: The cost-benefit of health education, however, should not be measured merely in terms of cost-effectiveness alone.

In the developing world, inadequate water supply and sanitation, ,akalah well as crowded living conditions, combined with lack asacris access to health care and low levels of education, make the poor particularly susceptible to infection and disease, including STHs. Typically, STH infections are chronic in endemic areas, and, as with other helminth parasites, it is likely that geohelminths have developed ways of modulating the host immune response to permit adult development and survival.

Effects of improved water supply and sanitation on ascariasis, diarrhoea, dracunculiasis, hookworm infection, schistosomiasis, and trachoma. Educational materials posters, leaflets, radio and video messages have been traditionally used to transmit and disseminate health-related messages, but strategies imported from the private sector are increasingly being advocated for their potential value in crafting and disseminating health-related messages.

Health education aims to improve health and increase hygiene awareness and to change health-related behavior in the population. Trop Med Int Health.

Deprived communities understand the importance of the safe disposal of fecal matter and of wearing shoes, but poverty often hinders the construction of latrines and the purchase of shoes.

The reasons for the development of a control strategy based on population intervention rather than on individual treatment are discussed, as well as the costs of the prevention of STHs, although these cannot always be calculated because interventions in health education are difficult to measure.

Many organizations, including NGOs, could include an STH control package in their routine activities and, even with limited budgets, relieve the burden of STHs in the population covered. Intensity of infection is measured by the number of eggs per gram of feces, generally by the Kato-Katz fecal thick-smear technique.
