The National Deworming Day is being observed across the country today. Children and adolescents in the age group of 1 to 19 years are being administered single dose of a safe medicine Albendazole in all states and Union Territories on the occasion.

The objective of the day is to deworm children and adolescents to reduce the prevalence of parasitic worms in the intestine. Children and adolescents who miss the dose today, can get dewormed on the 17th of this month. Union Health Ministry has said that washing hands can prevent worm infestation and many other diseases to a larger extent.

It said, inculcating healthy practices along with deworming treatment is essential for a healthy and worm free life. Talking exclusively to All India Radio News, Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan said, Albendazole tablet also takes care of children's nutritional requirement.
