Prevalence of Intestinal Parasites among School Going Children In Bareilly District

Rashid MK*, Joshi M#, Joshi HS@, Fatemi K*.

This study was conducted to find out the burden of intestinal parasitic infection among school going children in Bareilly District Uttar Pradesh India. A total of 320 stool samples were collected and screened from 4 schools. The stool sample was examined by direct wet mount examination. The prevalence of intestinal parasite was 22.81%. Ascaris lumbricoides (9.68%), Giardia lamblia (6.25%), Entamoeba histolytica (2.50%) were the commonest parasite isolated. Lack of pure drinking water and lack of proper sanitary disposal, and improper health education is supposed to be the root cause of these parasitic infections. This also advocates the regular and periodic health check up & deworming schedule for the students attending the school.

Key words: Prevalence, intestine, parasite, children
