Deworm the World, a programme of Evidence Action, collaborates with governments to run mass deworming programmes in schools located in at-risk communities.
Deworm the World is a programme of Evidence Action, whose mission is “to be a world leader in scaling evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty.” According to Evidence Action, more than 913 million children are at risk for parasitic worm infections, primarily in poor communities with inadequate sanitation around the world. These infections interfere with children’s nutrient uptake, often leading to anaemia, malnourishment, and impaired mental and physical development. As a result, children who are infected are less likely to attend school.
Regular treatment with a simple pill is a safe and effective solution to combat these infections. Deworm the World:
We previously included Deworm the World as one of our recommended charities because the impact-focused evaluator Founders Pledge recommended it after conducting an internal evaluation of it in 2023. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only organisations recommended by evaluators we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; while we expect to soon look into Founders Pledge as part of this more in-depth evaluator research, we haven’t yet. As such, we don't currently include Deworm the World as one of our recommend programs Deworm the World but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
In addition to the Founders Pledge recommendation, some other information relevant to Deworm the World’s cost-effectiveness is:
