Over 800 million children are at risk for contracting intestinal worms around the world. These parasites inhibit children’s ability to learn, grow, and become productive members of their communities. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), faith-based organizations (FBOs), and other groups are fighting intestinal parasites by distributing deworming medication to children—but these substantial efforts often go uncounted by the wider global health community, leading to wasted resources and missed opportunities.The Global NGO Deworming Inventory was carried out to collect data on deworming treatments delivered by NGOs in 2009 and 2010.

The Global NGO Deworming Inventory
The Global NGO Deworming Inventory is a project of the World Health Organization (WHO) in partnership with Children Without Worms (CWW), the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI), and Deworm the World (DtW).
