Abstract :

The prevalence of STH in Indonesia in general is still very high at 60%, especially in the underprivileged population who have a high risk of contracting this disease. STH infection showed an association with zinc concentration. Factors influencing child growth differ between populations and may depend on prevalences of STH species and zinc deficiency. This study was a randomized, non-disguise clinical trial conducted to assess zinc effectiveness on differences of weight and height of children after infection with the Soil Transmitted Helminth (STH) in Feuary-May 2017. All data is recorded in the status of the study, collected and then processed using SPSS 16.0 for Windows computer software. Of the 200 students, 70 met the inclusion criteria and 39 students were willing to measure their weight and height. Based on research using paired T test found significant differences in mean body weight and height at the beginning and end of the study in each group of zinc supplementation and without zinc supplementation. Based on this study there were significant differences in mean weight and height at the beginning and end of the study in each group of zinc supplementation and without zinc supplementation.
