“The Indian government is undertaking two major campaigns in the span of one month to protest hundreds of millions of Indians against soil-transmitted helminths and lymphatic filariasis — or worms and elephantiasis, respectively. … The goal: that some 140 million people will be protected against parasitic worms and more than 400 million will take medicine that prevents elephantiasis,” Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy writes (2/6).
