Our report, which describes success
in preventing soil-transmitted helminth
(STH) infections in Chinese schoolchildren
through the use of a health education
package that includes a 12-minute cartoon,
‘‘The Magic Glasses,’’ may thus
prove timely. The results from the cluster
randomized intervention trial, conducted
in 38 rural Chinese schools and involving
1,718 children, showed that the videobased
health education package had 50%
efficacy in preventing new STH infections
