Coalition Partners Working To Eliminate Soil-Transmitted Helminthiasis

Huffington Post: Uniting to Stop the Worms
David Addiss, director of Children Without Worms

“…At the second anniversary of the London Declaration on NTDs in April 2014, nine partners added pledges of over US$120 million toward [soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH)] control and prevention and helped establish the STH Coalition — now grown to 32 diverse partners committed to improving the health of children and communities through effective STH control. … The STH Coalition, working closely with the Global Schistosomiasis Alliance and other global alliances, will overcome barriers, determine where and how best to leverage resources, and establish metrics and measures of progress. 2015 will be a year of concerted action — a year in which we are truly uniting to stop the worms” (12/18).
