Increasing numbers of people who do not participate on the stool examination for schistosomiasis lead to undetectable positive schistosomiasis and generate low coverage rate of the examination. In 2009, the rate of stool examination in in Lindu community was 64,17%, but it slighly decreased by 63,72% in 2010. The objective of the study was to describe the participation of the Lindu community through the role of cadres and toma in order to enhance the coverage rate of the stool examination for schistosomiasis. The present study was conducted for nine months (March – December 2011) in Lindu, Sigi Regency of Central Sulawesi Province. An intervention research design was applied and presented descriptively. A total of 30 people was involved in thi study consisting of cadres, primary school teachers and community leaders. The intervention was introduced by providing training programme on shistosomiasis and increasing awareness of the stool examination to evaluate the prevalence of schistosomiasis. The results showed that the coverage rate of stool examination conducted by the community increased by 80% in two treated villages. There were some problems faced by the cadres and community leaders during the examination. Many people remain reluctant to collect their stool, get bored, feel disgusted and busy.
