  • Human Hookworm

    "Hookworm is a common, chronic (long-term) parasitic infection that is caused by the worms Necator americanus (Ne-kay-tor a-mare-e-caan-us) and Ancylostoma duodenale (An-cy-clo-stoma duo-dean-al). Only A. duodenale occurs in Australia. Humans are the main reservoir (source) of N. americanus and A. duodenale, and it is estimated that around 20% of the world population carries this parasite. Hookworm is not a Nationally Notifiable Disease."
