The prevalence of intestinal parasites in 2 suburbs of kinshasa zaire and their relation to domestic water supplies


Tropical & Geographical Medicine 37(2): 129-132
The prevalence of intestinal parasites in 2 suburbs of kinshasa zaire and their relation to domestic water supplies
The prevalence of common intestinal nematodes (Ascaris, Trichuris and hookworms) and protozoa (Entamoeba coli, E. histolytica, Giardia, Trichomonas) was compared in 2 suburbs of Kinshasa [Zaire], provided with piped H2O and the other one with wells. Pit latrines were used in both places. No significant differences were observed for the worms, but the prevalence of the common protozoa was approximately twice as high in the community without piped H2O supply. Providing piped H2O has some impact on the transmission of potentially pathogenic intestinal protozoa, but no influence, at least on the short run, on intestinal worms. Infections with Giardia and Trichomonas were significantly associated.
