Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

The relevant variable is called "Type of place of residence" and is hv025 in the PR and HR files, v025 in the IR, BR, and KR files, and mv025 in the MR files. The codes are 1=urban, 2=rural. Anything you want can then be tabulated by this variable.

The surveys do not generally include tests for parasites. On the DHS website you should be able to find which variables are included in which surveys. If you are using a specific survey, you can open the data file and look through the variable list or use a search command such as "lookfor" in Stata.
