Ms. Kristin Callahan as mentor
As a complement to the national initiative to improve the health and nutritional status of children in Peru, INMED Partnerships for Children is implementing an efficient and feasible strategy for monitoring and evaluating the impact of deworming activities that have been developed to control and prevent STH infection in certain regions in the past 5 years. As a first part of their deworming intervention they collected baseline data in order to set endline targets to measure the impact and effectiveness of their intervention. This study is the baseline data analysis for INMED's deworming intervention.
