PREVENTION AND CONTROL

The best way to avoid hookworm infection is not to walk barefoot in areas where hookworm is common and where there may be human fecal contamination of the soil. Also, avoid other skin contact with such soil and avoid ingesting it.

Infection can also be prevented by not defecating outdoors and by effective sewage disposal systems.
