A new study from the London Centre for NTD Research has been published which highlights that school based deworming programmes which target school children need to be integrated with other control programmes to have an impact on the wider community.
The paper, published in PloS NTDs explains, "Since there are very few studies which look at the indirect effect of school-based treatment, we need to do more studies to estimate mixing patterns and the impact on transmission in order to design effective programmes in the future."
The study showed that the impact of school-based treatment depends on the extent to which school children over-contribute to transmission in the community than adults - something which hasn't been studied since the early 1990s.
