What is it about?

We comment the methods of a systematic review and statistical meta-analysis aimed to produce high-resolution estimates of the risk and number of people infected with Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, and hookworm across South America

Why is it important?

We found that not include databases of Latin America or South America origin in their search strategy could compromise confidence in the findings of this systematic review and meta-analysis.
