Abstract:

In Burkina Faso, despite the strengthening of food security and household incomes, the malnutrition in market gardeners children remains a concern in some regions. This study aims to assess drinking water quality and intestinal parasitic infections in two market garden sites to understand the persistence of malnutrition in these children.Drinking water (n=43) and stools(n=96) from children aged06-59 months were analyzed. Stool samples were subjected to the Kato-Katz and a formalin-ether concentration method for the diagnosis of helminths and intestinal protozoa infections. In water samples, coliform bacteria, E. coli and fecal streptococci were secludedfollowing the membrane filtration method.In both sites, 54.55% of children were infected. Among them, Giardia lamblia were diagnosed in 52% of children, Entamoeba coli in 04% and whipworms in 10%. 61.90% of children infected by parasites were stunted. In both sites, 91.7%-100% of drinking water was contaminated by at least one fecal bacteria group. Around 45% of children who drink wells water without any treatment were infected. These results show the necessity to improve the access to safe drinking water, hygiene and sanitation in market gardens to reduce the intestinal parasitic infections in children which can lead to malnutrition.
