Hookworm infections are one of the classified NTDs that burden many areas of the world. In order to ensure that the most effective measures are being taken to address the hookworm epidemic in SSA, the control programs must be reevaluated. In particular countries where programs are yielding the best results (in terms of lowering the incidence of infections and reinfections) should be evaluated to determine the components of their program that stand out and can be beneficial in other areas where programs have shown some lapses. The goal of this program evaluation is to recommend amendments to programs in countries with the greatest burden of disease, such as Kenya, in order to facilitate a reduction and possible elimination of new cases and reinfections of hookworm in the most vulnerable populations. These amendments may prove to be useful in other countries where programs are lacking essential components for successful outcomes and also in reducing the burden in the general population. In order to accomplish this goal, the extent of the burden of hookworm infection in SSA, this burden’s impact on the health of the most vulnerable populations, and recommended strategies to control and prevent future hookworm infections must first be determined. From there, country specific control programs in Kenya will be evaluated by comparing it to recommendations made by WHO and to a successful program in Bangladesh. The integrated results also provide some information into the management to improve the quality of these programs.
