We are so very proud to report the results of the 2nd Kenya National School-Based Deworming Programme. Evidence Action's Deworm the World Initiative in Kenya and the Government of Kenya announced today at a press conference in Kenya that more than 6.4 million children were successfully dewormed, surpassing the national target of 5.7 million children by 12%. Deworming took place in nearly 16,000 schools in 28 counties that are endemic for parasitic worms.
This was the largest deworming exercise ever conducted in Kenya. A huge congrats to the Kenya Deworm the World team!
