ICSPM Reference Manual

Michael Deming, MD, MPH, Consultant, Children Without Worms

This manual describes how to conduct an Integrated Community-based Survey for Program Monitoring (ICSPM). The ICSPM is a probability household survey that measures prevalence of any STH infection and of medium and high intensity infections simultaneously in each risk group. It enables STH Programs to assess program impact and progress toward the elimination goal, and determine what the frequency of STH preventive chemotherapy should be, which depends on the prevalence range of any-STH infection. The manual is for national STH control program managers and survey coordinators at the implementation unit, sub-national, and national levels.
