Groups involved with deworming are still able to participate in the 2010 Global NGO Deworming Inventory.

By contributing to the Inventory you’ll help the global deworming community build stronger partnerships to more effectively treat children, and promote awareness of the work done by NGOs, FBOs, and other organizations to treat intestinal worms in children.

What is the Global NGO Deworming Inventory?

The Global NGO Deworming Inventory was launched in June of 2010 with the explicit purpose of assessing the breadth and scope of NGO deworming activities and their treatment achievements worldwide. The Inventory collates data on NGO deworming activities and presents an overview of who is deworming where, and how many children are being treated. Data from the Inventory are then shared with the WHO Preventive Chemotherapy (PCT) Databank to compile NGO deworming data with data from Ministries of Health and measure collective progress towards the World Health Assembly (WHA) target of treating 75% of school age children at risk of infection with intestinal worms.

Results from the 2009 Inventory

Twenty-four NGOs participated in the 2009 Deworming Inventory and reported about 62.8 million treatments (school-age children treated with a deworming drug), of which 20.8 million were unique treatments not previously captured in the WHO databank. These numbers indicate that there is a notable amount of deworming conducted by NGOs that is not recognized at the global level and therefore not reflected in measurements of global progress towards reaching the WHA target. Visit the 2009 Inventory Reports page for treatment reports by country, organization, and for a full report on the 2009 Inventory results.
