Waterborne parasites are a type of pathogen that can be found in contaminated water. These parasites can cause a range of illnesses, including cryptosporidiosis, giardiasis, and schistosomiasis.
Waterborne parasites are particularly common in areas with poor sanitation and hygiene, as well as in areas with inadequate water treatment and distribution systems. Ingesting contaminated water or coming into contact with contaminated water can lead to infection.
Preventing waterborne parasite infections requires a combination of interventions, including improving access to safe drinking water and sanitation, promoting good hygiene practices, and implementing effective water treatment and distribution systems
