Abstract

Helminthic infection due to nematodes is a major public health problem in the developing and underdeveloped countries including Bangladesh. This is due to poor hygienic habits and living condition of the majority of the population. The common nematodes found in Bangladesh are Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, Ancylostoma duodenale etc. Ascariasis, Trichuriasis and Ancylostomiasis appear to flourish in the communities where the socio-economic status is dominated by poverty, poor housing, insufficient sanitation and a need of health education (Crompton 1988).
