Hookworm infestatiation is among the major causes of anaemiain developing countries. It is a common problem, but its importance causing maternal anaemia is little understood. It is an important risk factor for anaemia among pregnant women. Hookworm infestation is a leading cause of maternal and child morbidity in the developing countries of the tropics and subtropics. It is rarely fatal, though anaemia can be significant in the heavily infested individuals. Consequences of hookworm infestation associated with anaemia in pregnancy are cardiovascular symptoms, reduced physical and mental performance, reduced immunity, fatigue, reduced peripartal blood reserve in mothers and intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity, and low birth weight in newborns. Thus, importance for the inclusion of anthelmintic treatment in maternal health packages in India based on WHO recommendation is a requirement.
