DtW works at the global, regional and country levels to generate support to expand school-based deworming.
At the global level, we have advocated for a universal policy shift to expand school-based deworming. The Education For All – Fast Track Initiative and the World Food Programme have revised frameworks and policies to expand their support for school-based deworming. Additionally, our partnership with the Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum and the Clinton Global Initiative through the school-based deworming mega-commitment has enabled us to further raise the profile of this issue and bring together key partners to advance deworming action.
At the regional level, we work with the Regional Economic Communities of East and West Africa, as well as regional Ministries of Education Networks of School Health and Nutrition Focal Points and technical bodies to raise awareness and support among high level policymakers and bring about the development of regional and national deworming policies and plans.
At the country level, we work with Ministries of Education and Health as well as in-country development partners to provide joint support and generate national policies, strategies and implementation plans.
