<b>School based Schistosomiasis Prevention and Control Program in Northern Samar</b> In impoverished nations, schistosomiasis, sometimes known as snail fever, is one of the most common parasite illnesses and one of the neglected tropical diseases. 779 million people are thought to be at risk, and 240 million instances of infection and more than 280,000 fatalities occur each year globally. In many parts of the world, it is still one of the primary causes of morbidity US Global Health Policy, 2009 . Schistosoma japonicum is the causative agent of schistosomiasis in the Philippines. In the poorest provinces, it is still a significant public health issue since it is a disease of poverty. In 12 regions, 14 cities, 203 municipalities, and 1,593 barangays throughout 28 provinces, it is now endemic. Contact between people and other animal hosts and waterways that serve as snails breeding grounds is necessary for transmission and infection. Snail sites and bodies of water with snail infestations are direct sources of transmission. Leyte, 711, Western Samar, 251, Eastern Samar, 216, and Northern Samar, 334, all include around 1,512 snail sites DOH RHO 8 Report, 2013 . 1322-1324 Issue-5 Volume-1 Sarah B. Delorino
