Abstract

Strongyloidiasis is well established in many Aboriginal communities of north-eastern Australia. Children appear to be the major reservoirs of infection; the prevalence in adults is probably much lower. Failing improvements in community sanitation and hygiene, it may be possible to reduce significantly, if not eradicate, the infection by selectively treating diagnosed children with thiabendazole.
