A quarter of the world's children infected with intestinal worms are found in India, where 26% of deaths in under-14s are attributed to diarrheal disease.

Intestinal worms is a painful and uncomfortable disease leading anaemia and malnutrition, resulting in chronic disabilities. 

 

Associated with a lack of access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), WASH-related diseases disproportionately impacted marginalised and impoverished populations. 

 

However, these diseases can be prevented and eliminated through simple and effective health measures.

To break the cycle of poverty GPM has teamed up with NALA, an Israeli Public Health organization that has recorded an average 90% decrease in prevalence of intestinal worms in school children.

 

Through addressing the root causes of diseases, sustainable elimination can be achieved, malnutrition prevented, and the cycle of poverty broken.
