Andereck JW, Kipp AM, Ondiek M, Vermund SH. Helminth prevalence among adults in rural Kenya: a stool survey for soil-transmitted helminths and schistosomiasis in Nyanza province. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. 2014 Dec;108(108). 804-9. PMID: 25359321 [PubMed]
Soil-transmitted helminth (STH) prevalence in children is high in rural southwestern Kenya, but adult prevalence data are scarce. A 2010 study of a village in Nyanza province found a pediatric STH prevalence of 44% using a direct stool-smear method. Adult STH prevalence and associated predictors was measured in the same village.
