From initial program design through to program implementation, we provide a technical assistance package that enables governments to develop comprehensive programs targeting at-risk areas.
Based upon WHO guidelines and current operational good practice, our support is specifically tailored to the needs of each country. Our section For Implementers outlines the eight key steps of school-based deworming, and we provide assistance for all of these steps.
An essential part of our support strategy is to help increase government capacity, resulting in deworming programs that are fully managed and implemented by Ministries of Education, in collaboration with the Ministries of Health. We are currently providing in-depth technical assistance to four programs:
- Andhra Pradesh School-Based Deworming Program
- Bihar School-Based Deworming Program
- Delhi School-Based Deworming Program
- Kenya National School-Based Deworming Program
- Liberia School-Based Deworming Program
- Nigeria School-Based Deworming Program
