What's Next? 

Evidence Action’s Deworm the World Initiative has ambitious plans in the next several years to eliminate the public health threat of parasitic worms. We are poised to take advantage of an unparalleled window of opportunity to rapidly accelerate treatment coverage of children worldwide.

Multilateral organizations, pharmaceutical companies, NGOs, and governments are prioritizing the elimination of neglected tropical diseases, allocating resources and developing roadmaps for scaling up treatment. 

We will: 

  • Decrease the worm burden by expanding school-based deworming into new geographies. 
  • Build sustained government capacity to operate consistent, cost-effective, and high-quality school-based deworming programs. 
  • Catalyze partners to adopt school-based deworming models and associated best practices to close the treatment gap.
