Second Copenhagen Consensus: Deworming Best Practice, Hall Horton

Best Practice Paper

By Andrew Hall & Sue Horton

Deworming and other nutrition programmes in school were ranked as the sixth best intervention overall, considering their potential benefit:cost ratio, anticipated feasibility and the sustainability of the intervention.
