Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Survey protocols were approved by Emory University Internal Review Board (protocol no. 079-2006) and The Amhara Regional Health Bureau. Oral informed consent or assent was obtained as appropriate from village chiefs, heads of household, and individual survey participants. All participants providing a stool sample were offered a single dose of albendazole (400 mg). It was not logistically feasible to distribute praziquantel as part of the survey due to the inability to diagnose positive infections on the same day as the survey and the inability to monitor children for adverse effects for the two hours following treatment.
