I just reviewed this stub article. One topic to include is how many people in the world are infected with helminths, how many are being treated, and where are these people? Emble64 (talk) 17:11, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Is deworming prevention or treatment?
do we regard de-worming as a prevention or as a treatment? At the moment it appears under both headings. I guess it depends if the drugs are given as a pre-emptive measure, i.e. without having diagnosed the child as having worms or not? EvM-Susana (talk) 20:23, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Orphaned references in Helminthiasis
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Helminthiasis's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 13:48, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
