Direct smears of one stool sample for each public were used in this study. The samples were selected from one urban and two rural areas. Afghan immigrants were also included in the study. Among study population, 69 % were infected by intestinal parasites. The most prevalent parasite was giardia lamblia (55 % ) and after that E-coli and Entamoeba histolytic had the highest prevalence. No difference was found in the prevalence of parasitic infections between boys and girls. Most of the infections were seen in 10-12 age group. 3rd grade students had the highest rate of infection among different educational levels. (25 % ) but no significant difference was found Mong students of different grades. Among school children 12. 7 % were infected by more than one parasite most of which were giardia lamblia and E­Coli. 29 Afghan school children were included in this study, significant correlation was found between having an Afghan nationality and intestinal parasitic infection (P < 0.01). No difference was found in the prevalence of intestinal parasites between rural and urban regions.
