Efficacy of current drugs against soil-transmitted helminth infections: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
I've also spent almost a month once doing a soil-transmitted helminth survey of schoolchildren that consisted of a team of us backpacking from school to school with microscopes.
The diseases are trachoma (blinding eye infection), soil-transmitted helminths (hookworm, ascaris, trichuris), onchocerciasis (river blindness), schistosomiasis (snail fever), and lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis).
