Global parasite control initiative of Japan (Hashimoto Initiative)

Global parasite control initiative of Japan (Hashimoto Initiative)

Parasitology International 55(Suppl.): S293-S296

The Asian Centre of International Parasite Control (ACIPAC) was established in Bangkok in March 2000 as a JICA technical cooperation project in collaboration with the Mahidol University and the Ministry of Public Health, Thailand. Since then, ACIPAC carried out its activities with emphasis on the establishment of the concept of school health-based parasite control in the Great Mekong sub-region countries. In addition to contributing human resource development through its training courses on school-based malaria and STH control for programme managers and also through small-scale pilot projects implemented in partner countries, ACIPAC proposed that schoolchildren should be considered as health partners rather than simple recipients of health services including deworming programmes.
