Prevalence[edit]

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)

Chhandama (talk) 06:05, 26 March 2013 (UTC) I hope the information I have added answer the suggestion.

Is deworming prevention or treatment?[edit]

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)

Hum good point. It is sort of both. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 21:24, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Helminthiasis[edit]

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.

Reference named "WHO2014":

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)
