Researchers studyng fecal samples collected at random from 382 children age 2-15 years report that 93% of the samples tested positive for at least one parasitic infection. Females were more likely to present with multiple parasitic infections (85.4%, 326/382, p=0.001). Rural background and age status (6-11) were also positively associated with infection probability, as were drinking river water. Walking barefoot was positively associated with hookworm infection.
