Our vision is a world free of parasitic worm infections.

Our mission is to support the development of effective and sustainable systems that will eliminate parasitic worm infections.

We’ve achieved a lot since our foundation in 2002. We’ve helped establish programmes against parasitic worm infections in countries where none previously existed and now support the delivery of millions of treatments each year. But with over 1 billion people still infected, there is still a lot left to do to eliminate these diseases for good.

Find out how we support government programmes with our Strategic Plan for 2018-2025 below.


our goals


Those affected by parasitic worm infections receive treatment and care.


Communities change their behaviours to reduce the risk of infection.


Environmental changes are put in place to reduce the transmission of infection.


Everyone has access to all services that can reduce the risk of - and alleviate the problems associated with - infection.

our approach


1. Partnerships

We are collaborative, promoting inclusion and synergy.

We act as catalysts in the creation of successful cross-sectoral partnerships that generate the greatest impact on disease transmission.


2. Operational Excellence and Innovation

We are agile, adapting to changing local and global environments.

We aim to constantly improve and innovate, to ensure that we optimise our efforts and use resources most cost-effectively.


3. Sustainability

We ensure that our work is sustainable and supports broader development.

We support governments to strengthen systems and processes, so that they are dynamic, responsive and deliver results.


4. Evidence-based

We generate evidence to inform decisions and guide our work.

We improve processes and develop preferred practices for global health policy. We share knowledge to ensure that everyone can benefit from improved health.
