Hookworm disease
Prevention and Control
  • To prevent hookworm infections, contact of bare skin with contaminated soil should be avoided.
    Proposed measures: wearing shoes, reduce faecal contamination of soil by sanitation (installation of latrines, personal hygiene).
  • Health education is essential to control hookworm disease
  • Mass treatment (has no effect if no change in sanitation and hygiene!)
