Our work focuses on three pillars:

  • Country Support

    We support and build the capacity of national STH programs to ensure effective and efficient delivery of interventions.

  • Partnerships & Advocacy

    We build consensus among a broad group of stakeholders and seek to minimize duplication of efforts in advancing STH interventions.

  • Technical Leadership

    We provide scientific leadership to advocate for evidence-based approaches for the control of intestinal worm infections.
