Keywords:QHA, Ascaris, Trichuris, Nutritional Status, Stunting.
Objective: to analyze the relationship between the Quantitative Helmint Assessment with nutritional status
and the incidence of stunting in SD Bangkala III students in Makassar City
Method :This type of research is analytic observational using cross sectional design. Location This research
was conducted at SD Bangkala III, Bangkala Village, Manggala District, Makassar City. 63 samples were
taken using proportional stratified random sampling technique and simple random sampling. Quantitative

of eggs per gram of feces (EPG) in each type of worm.
Results: based on the measurement results of the helmint assessment for the mild category with the incidence
of stuting and not stunting kneeling as many as 8 (38.0%), 13 (62.0%), respectively. In the measurement
results, the moderate category with the incidence of stuting and non-stunting was 11 (38%), respectively. 13
(62%), while the results of QHA measurements for the severe category of knee stunting were 1 (25%), and 3
(75%), respectively. based on the measurement results of the helmint assessment for the light category with
nutritional status of thin, normal and obese knees as many as 5 (23.8%), 13 (62.0%) and 3 (14.2%).
Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between QRA and nutritional status in elementary school
students with p value (0.003), there is a significant relationship between QRA and the incidence of stunting
with p value (0.022).
