Trichuriasis is an infection of the large intestine caused by the human whipworm (Trichuris trichiura). Trichuriasis is part of a family of parasites known as the soil-transmitted helminths.
Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness, infects 26 million people living near the rivers and fast-moving streams of sub-Saharan Africa. A small number of cases have also been reported in Yemen and the Americas.
