Deworm the multiple yeast infections world – evidence action

We provide technical assistance to the ministry of health and multiple yeast infections family welfare along with customized assistance to eleven states: bihar, chattisgarh, haryana, jharkhand, madhya pradesh, rajasthan, telangana, tripura, uttarakhand, uttar pradesh, and karnataka.

In february 2015, we helped the national government initiate national deworming day (NDD). The program reach extends to preschools, government schools, private schools, and out-of-school children, targeting all children aged 1-19. As of february 2018, NDD scaled up to 34 states and union territories, with the government reporting treatment of over 266 million children.

We have supported the government of kenya’s school-based deworming at national scale since 2012, annually treating children at risk for STH and schistosomiasis through multiple yeast infections a collaboration between the ministry of education and ministry of multiple yeast infections health. In 2017, the program treated 5.9 million children (including 519,232 for schistosomiasis) across 27 counties. The program reached 80% of at-risk children, exceeding the WHO’s 75% coverage target.

Across the 27 counties, STH infections have steadily reduced, from baseline infection of 33.4% to 15.9% after three years of treatment (including a 19% reduction in moderate-to-heavy intensity infections); schistosomiasis infection reductions have also been achieved.

Ethiopia is the fifth most burdened country globally by childhood multiple yeast infections worm infection; 18.4 million school-age children and 6.6 million preschool-age children are at risk for STH infection. Approximately, 14.6 million school-age children are at risk of schistosomiasis.

The national deworming program is led by the federal ministry multiple yeast infections of health, and implemented in partnership with the ministry of education and multiple yeast infections the ethiopian public health institute. We partner with the schistosomiasis control initiative (SCI) to provide technical assistance to national and sub-national government ministries.

As of 2017, the government of ethiopia has treated roughly 15 million school-age children children for STH and 4.6 million for schistosomiasis. The program intends to distribute over 100 million deworming treatments multiple yeast infections to school-age children by 2019.

Nigeria is the third most burdened country in terms of multiple yeast infections its number of children at risk for worm infections. Approximately 28.6 million school-age children are at risk for STH infection; 23.8 school-age children are at risk of schistosomiasis.

We partner with cross river state and RTI international to multiple yeast infections provide technical assistance to the state ministries of health and multiple yeast infections education; our support for school-based treatment complements community-based treatment of other neglected tropical diseases. In its first year of operation, the program treated over 492,179 school-age children for STH and schistosomiasis.

We are engaging with the federal ministry of health to multiple yeast infections support development of a national-level deworming strategy and collaborating on further expansion of school-based deworming in nigeria. In 2017, our state level support expanded to three additional partner states multiple yeast infections – rivers, oyo, and ogun – and treated 3.5 million children.

Exciting research opportunities exist as part of this program. We are conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to understand whether a school-based hygiene education package is successful and cost-effective at reducing reinfection among school-age children when combined with school-based deworming.

We plan to work with health and education stakeholders at multiple yeast infections the national and provincial level to support the initiation of multiple yeast infections a school-based deworming program in late 2018 in areas recommended for multiple yeast infections mass treatment, continuing our partnership with IRD.
