Abstract

1. South Korea successfully implemented a sustained, nation-wide deworming campaign that was jump-started in 1969 with a three-year massive assistance program from the Overseas Technical Cooperation Agency (OTCA) of Japan, culminating in the 1997 WHO declaration that the country is essentially worm-free. This report presents objectives and achievements of this successful national deworming campaign; backgrounds and needs for the campaign; strategy and system employed; details of implementation; and assessment of impacts of the deworming campaign, from both epidemiological and economic perspectives.
2. Up until the 1960s before launching of the campaign, intestinal worm infection was endemic to all area of Korea, and most individuals in the population carried several different kinds of intestinal worms. Roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms were the most prevalent parasite species. In addition, many people suffered from clonorchiasis and infection by other types of worms.
