Summary
The parasitosis in the tropical countries like Ecuador, are found in the different population groups of all ages, sexes, social conditions, ethos, especially in those without hygienic conditions, pertaining to different geographic zones and the prevalence varies in agreement with the ecology, the human factors and the social economic characteristics. The fecal contamination on land and water where an adequate disposition of excretes, the surrounding conditions, the deficient living conditions, the rural life, the absence of bathrooms, the custom to not use shoes and to have contact with the water. The deficiency of hygienic education, contamination of foods and human migration all favor intestinal parasites. The parasitic plague in Ecuador and especially in the province of Imbabura is not very well known, this is because of the little attention and economical means that are given to an investigation. This investigation clearly points out the different concepts, definitions, consequences, treatments and prophylaxis that the community should take into account. This investigative work was done in the rural area of the Imbabura province for the following ethos: Indigenous, Black, and Mestizo, with children younger than five years old and it is directed to the health personnel, and students It is estimated that in the whole world more than 20 million people are infected by the "himenolepsis" parasite. The Intestinal parasite has a direct relation with the Nutritional state of any given country, as well as the basic services, like water, collection of trash, elimination of excretes, illiteracy, bad family hygiene habits, and a healthy environment. This is how 40 thousand children die of hunger in the world daily, the difference here is an American child eats 500 times more than third world child. The lack of interest by the governments both international and national in health Programs in rural zones, impedes a solution being found. 50% of investigations are dedicated to the advancements in military, which also influences the lack of water, 3 billion people in the world lack drinkable water. There are many forms of exposure to the parasite, including, ground (garbage or trash left on floor) or contaminated water, contaminated food, biting insects, domestic or wild animals which have the parasite, another person, and their clothes or bed sheets. The most common of these being contaminated water. There are many reasons these parasites are found in higher numbers in third world countries. The lack of healthiness in the rural population increases the intestinal parasite in children under five years old, the lack of knowledge by part of the mothers on the consequences of the intestinal parasites. Bad hygenal habits that the mothers have as well as the children under five years old in not washing their hands before eating and after using the restroom add to the rapid spread of the parasite. The nutritional state of the children greatly increases exposure, mostly concerning food preparation. The presence of intestinal parasites in the children under five years old does the same damage with no importance to age, race, or sex. The bad form in which excretes are eliminated in the town also contributes to parasite spreading. To fight against further parasite spreading it is advised that a program of investigation is applied with many disciplinary teams including: Doctors, Epidemists, Microbiologists, Anthropologist, Nutritionists, and nurses to study and help find solution for the well-being of the the areas that most need it. To also help, it is advised that Nutritionists, Nurses, Doctors, and people who have direct knowledge of what is health, capacitate the leaders of the community and citizens on the basic hygiene norms, including preparation and manipulation of foods, consequences and ways to prevent parasites. This would help slow the rapid spread of parasites among youth as well as adults. Have meetings teaching proper use of bathrooms
