WHO defines STH as a public health problem when >1% of the at-risk population has infection of moderate or high intensity with one or more soil-transmitted helminths (roundworm, whipworm, or hookworm).

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.

We acknowledge the critical support of our core funding partners:
