Preventing pandemics through everyday health systems


How do we strengthen everyday health systems so they’re ready for that rainy day? The responses to new diseases need to be implemented in the same health systems that have been established for everyday health needs.

Ahead of the G7 Summit and WHA76, Dr Gabrielle Laing, Chair of the Neglected Tropical Diseases NGO Network (NNN) One Health Cross-Cutting Group and One Health Policy Advisor at Unlimit Health, talks about why COVID-19 was not a one-off and One Health is a vital approach to prepare for the next pandemic.

Schistosomiasis through the eyes of a father and son

Said, a young boy from Zanzibar, would like to be a great footballer one day - but schistosomiasis nearly took that dream away from him. Children across the world are better able to follow their aspirations when their health is not limited.

Epidemiological surveys: an interactive exploration of how we target treatment to those who need it most

To make sure treatment reaches the people most in need, we support ministries of health (MoH) with a range of monitoring and evaluation tools, including epidemiological surveys for parasitic worm infections such as schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminths.

Communities in Uganda in the driving seat of efforts to eliminate schistosomiasis

Last year, we supported a pilot project in Buwaiswa and nearby communities to identify community-specific causes of schistosomiasis transmission. The results will be used to implement community-driven solutions, as well as water and sanitation services to reduce the risk of disease.

Say hello to Unlimit Health!

Unlimit Health – formerly known as SCI Foundation – has launched an ambitious five-year strategy that sets out a new direction for improving health equity through tackling parasitic disease, such as schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis. It follows a deep analysis of the changing development and global health context.

The strategy acknowledges that progress made over the past decade – including on elimination of parasitic infections – has been compromised by the Covid-19 pandemic and significant reductions in funding. It builds on the need for system resilience and equity at the heart of development efforts, and the shift in emphasis away from a funder-led agenda to one driven by local ownership and sustainability considerations.

What we do

We work in partnership with ministries of health in endemic countries, supporting sustainable country-owned solutions that eliminate preventable parasitic infections.

Monitoring & evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation surveys are one of the main tools ministries of health (MoH) use to assess the quality and impact of treatment programmes against parasitic worms. We support MoH with the planning, delivery, and analysis of these surveys, providing critical information to enable programmes to ensure treatment for every person in need.

Success stories

Our Big Give Christmas 2022 appeal highlighted a project in Uganda where people in six communities affected by schistosomiasis are devising ways to improve access to safe water and sanitation, and so reduce the transmission of the disease.
