Global Atlas of Helminth Infections

Check out the Global Atlas of Helminth Infections website (developed by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Partnership for Child Development). This is “an open-access information resource on the distribution of soil-transmitted helminths and schistosomiasis”. Country maps are currently available only for Sub-Saharan Africa, but will eventually be available also for Latin America and Asia.

Note: there are better life-cycle diagrams on the CDC website – Ascaris, Trichuris, hookworms, and schistosomes.
