Refining deworming treatment campaigns: an interactive exploration

Ensuring access to treatment for those who need it most

One of the biggest challenges in tackling parasitic worm infections is that they affect the most marginalised and hard to reach people. How do we, therefore, make sure that treatment reaches the those most in need?

This interactive story illustrates how using tools such as coverage evaluation surveys (CES) enables us to assess certain aspects of a treatment programme’s process, performance, and messaging.

Our work alongside ministries of health, allows us to review these elements on a regular basis, providing opportunities to improve treatment programmes and ensure that drugs are successfully distributed to those who need them.

Explore the story below and find out how CES help to uncover whether treatment campaigns are reaching maximum effectiveness to fight against neglected tropical diseases.
