Soil-Transmitted Helminths

Did you know that 1.5 BILLION people are infected with soil-transmitted helminths? Also known as STH, these insidious intestinal worms sap the nutrition, health and vitality of developing children around the world. If untreated, children infected with STH could become permanently stunted physically and cognitively. For a very nominal cost twice a year plus follow-on preventive education, we can beat STH. INMED and INMED Andes, along with Johnson & Johnson, have mobilized a national effort to make Peru the first endemic country in 70 years to eliminate STH as a public health problem in children.
