Jessica Scott investigated the epidemiology of soil-transmitted helminths (STHs) in a rural Papua New Guinea community. High STH prevalence was found, and the likelihood of STH infection was associated with some demographic and clinical factors such as age and residency. These findings could guide future public health interventions.
