Executive Function: A Better Way to Evaluate the Impact of Deworming on Children's Educational Outcomes?


This project focuses on intestinal roundworms, a neglected disease in China.  These infections may have a devastating effect on a population, siphoning valuable nutrients away from the host, leading to malnutrition, stunted growth and poorer school performance. In the study, the researchers aim to contribute to the literature by conducting a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) in rural China to measure the impact of worm infection on school children.
