Abstract: Among the students attended by the City Education Secretary of Estiva Gerbi, 11.5% presented enteroparasites. This prevalence could be related to socioeconomic aspects. Accordingly we conducted a workshop on intestinal parasites with the objective of informing and discussing related aspects in combination with medical treatment. Students were evaluated from the Alaíde R. Batista School, which attends children up to 4 years old and had the highest (23.5%) level of parasitism. Reevaluation two years after the workshop showed that the prevalence of enteroparasites in the treated students had decreased to 6.6%, but considering the school as a whole the prevalence was still 23.3%, due to the enrolling of new students. It was concluded that educational programs are only effective when integrated to a complete and continuous process of education, control and eradication of enteroparasitosis.
