Survey for assessing the prevalence of Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH) among school-aged children of Bangladesh

GroupMappers’ support to the National ELF and STH Control Program

One of the initiatives we’re proud of is our support for the National ELF and STH Control Program among school-aged children as part of The Integrated Community-based Survey. With this project, our aim was to not only create a locational map for evaluation of the STH prevalence, but also to increase the capacity of the program.

We used digital forms to survey over 5000 children from 84 schools in 51 districts to produce population-representative results and identify district-specific epidemiologic findings for program decisions.
