Deworm the World
Deworm the World is an initiative of Innovations for Poverty Action. DtW brings together governments and partner organizations around the world committed to improving children’s health and education by massively expanding national and statewide deworming programs.
Donations for deworming go far. School-based deworming has proven impact on children's health, cognitive abilities and school attendance. Through advocating for sustainable government action, this initiative has helped reach over 37 million children through massive scale-up including 17 million school-age children in Bihar, India, and is targeting additional children in Delhi, India, Nigeria, and Liberia.
