Helminth infection caused by Ascaris lumbricoides, Trihuris trichiura and hookworm, are included in Soil Transmitted helminth is a major health problem at the tropic and subtropic area. This disease can infect all ages but a higher prevalence in children under ten years without sexual differences. A patient is rarely can be a died as a consequence of helminth infection, but the effect is a correlation with nutrition and intellectual in children. The infection effect is more than danger in children than adults. The aims from this research are to compare two examination faeces method to diagnose if any infection by STH to humans, especially in children. The expectation in this research can be used in screening activity who are useful to early diagnose in STH infection so can decrease negative effect in children. The research is observational research with a cross-sectional study. A sample is children in Yaa Bunayya Play Group and kindergarten as many 24 sample. The faeces will be conducted twice an examination and then compare with the standard gold test. Two methods will be compared to the floating method and formol-ether sedimentation. Meanwhile, a gold standard is the Kato Katz method. A collecting sample for two months. The result can show no one children in 24 sample infected by STH. Specificity for two method is the same (100%), sensitivity and statistical analyze can’t be count, but in descriptive no difference between this method.
