Endgame | Lymphatic filariasis and Soil-transmitted helminths

In 2015, the World Health Organization published a manual entitled "Assessing the Epidemiology of Soil-Transmitted Helminths during a Transmission Assessment Survey in the Global Programme for the Elimination of Lymphatic Filariasis." The guidelines were designed to capture the impact of lymphatic filariasis programs on soil-transmitted helminthiasis and provide guidance on whether ongoing mass drug administration is needed to control the transmission of intestinal worms.
