Fig. 6

Impact of more intensive preventive chemotherapy with albendazole in highly endemic areas, as predicted by WORMSIM. All panels pertain to the highly endemic scenario. The horizontal dashed black indicates the WHO target level of 1 % prevalence of medium and heavy infection. Panels from left to right represent different PC target populations (preSAC, SAC, and WCBA vs. total population of age two and above), and PC coverage (75 % vs. 90 %). Panels from top to bottom represent PC implemented at different frequencies (annual vs. semi-annual vs. 4-monthly vs. quarterly PC)
