Mass deworming of all school-aged children with anthelmintics has been increasingly appreciated in reducing the prevalence and intensity of soil transmuted helminth infections. However, little is known about this intervention's consequences on non-targeted pathogens populations occupying the same gastrointestinal niche. We aim to investigate the possible unintended effect of Mass deworming treatment against STHs on non-targeted pathogens in young Ethiopian Children. Information on deworming status, socio-demographic, and environmental factors were collected using an interviewer-led questionnaire.
