The Evidence for Impacts of Deworming Grows

Evidence Action engages in a rigorous and systematic approach to identify development interventions that we can turn into programs that benefit millions of people with real and proven results. That is what sets us apart from most global development organizations. All programs that we undertake have a strong evidence base generated from peer-reviewed, rigorous evaluations that demonstrate a clear causal chain, most often in the form of randomized control trials (RCTs).

Evidence Action’s Deworm the World Initiative is a good example of a program that is bolstered by a well-rounded and very strong evidence base that highlights the positive impacts of mass deworming on children’s cognition and education across diverse settings.

And now there is new evidence that further supports that mass deworming works and even has long-term effects.
