The 27th National Deworming Campaign will begin in primary and secondary schools across the country on January 22.
During the course of the 10-day campaign, about 2.6 crore children between the ages of 5 and 16 would receive one deworming tablet each.
There will also be activities for the children outside of the classroom.
After three regions of the program underwent a successful test, the government started to expand it in 2005.
Since 2008, the government has regularly conducted the campaign around the country. Worm prevalence has thus fallen from 80% in 2015 to 7.95% at this time.
