These animations, from the Wellcome Trust, help to show how parasitic worms are a major public health problem.
Thriving in numerous parts of the world associated with poor sanitation or water, these parasites have devised ingenious mechanisms that allow them to enter the human body, resulting in serious disease.
The animations show how the following diseases are transmitted and the effects they have in the body:
• Intestinal Worms
• Lymphatic Filariasis
