Soil Transmitted Helminths (STH) infection is still a public health problem in Indonesia, because Indonesia geographic condition is optimum for its growth. Children, including schoolchildren are at highest risk.Although it rarely causes death, this infection may inhibit physical development and intellectual growth. The aim of this research was to identify STH infection and investigate the relation between risk factors with STH infection of school children at Elementary School Undaan, South Malang. The study used was observastional analytic research using cross sectional study. The total number of students were 93 people, only 68 send the feces and was done by floatation technics. Data were collected from questionaire, interview, observational and feces sample examination. To analyse the statistical relation between the variables, ChiSquare test with level of significance p0.05 was used. This research showed that 26 children (38.2 %) of 68 sample was infected with STH. The most prevalent STH infection was mixed Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura (42.3 %). Evaluation 3 month after treatment showed that only 1 child (3.8 %) of 26 sample infected with STH. This research showed that some risk factors were significantly related with the incidence of STH infection. The significant values for hand washing habit with soap before defecation was 0.012, out door feet protection habit was 0.041, and nail biting habit was 0.030. Conclusion: Not all of the identified risk factors influenced the Soil Transmitted Helminth (STH) infection. However the relation of some risk factors and the incidence of intestinal worm infection are significance. Suggestion: Further research should be done with different technics, location and number of samples.
