Quantifying the contribution of dogs to the strongyloidiasis burden in children in Cambodia

This project uses soil-transmitted helminth prevalence data to model transmission of Strongyloides stercoralis in Cambodia, including the possibility of zoonotic transmission. The model will then be used to analyse the likely impacts on human disease of a dog-deworming program under different implementation strategies.
