  • Spanish PLS Los programas de desparasitación masiva producen efectos marginales o ningún efecto en la mayoría de los resultados sobre temas de bienestar
  • Spanish PLS Description La helmintiasis y la esquistosomiasis transmitidas por el suelo afectan a más de un tercio de la población mundial. En este sentido, existe debate sobre la eficacia, por un lado, y qué tan efectivas en función de costos son las desparasitaciones masivas de niños. La presente revisión evalúa los efectos producidos por desparasitaciones masivas de helmintos transmitidos por el suelo en el crecimiento, los logros educacionales, la cognición, la asistencia a la escuela y la calidad de vida, además de ciertos efectos adversos en niños que habitan zonas endémicas.
