INTRODUCTION
•Intestinal helminthiasisare soil transmitted helminthinfections which affect the world’s most impoverished and deprived communities. These infections are associated with poor environmental sanitary conditions (WHO, 2017). They are transmitted by eggs in human faeceswhich tend to contaminate the soil under poor environmental conditions.
•These diseases are also among the neglected tropical diseases which tend to have a high geographical overlap throughout the tropical countries.(Sach, 2007)
