Number of years of annual treatment to achieve elimination of hookworm as a function of coverage of children versus adults. Two different transmission settings were explored; intermediate (R0 = 2.5), and high (R0 = 5)– as measured by the basic reproductive number (R0) [11]. Results assume a 94.8 % treatment efficacy. Pre-SAC and SAC, 2–14 year olds; and adults, ≥15 year olds. Individuals under two years of age were not eligible for treatment. NA; Not achievable within 15 years of annual treatment
