​Why Governments Sh​ould Invest in Deworming

​Globally, 870 million children need deworming treatment for parasitic worms and when children are infected with these worms they are prevented from learning and growing to their full potential.  A new paper argues that mass school-based deworming is a highly cost-effective educational investment which has a high-return economic investment. 

Entitled, 'When Should Gov​ernments Subsidize Health? The Case of Mass Deworming', the paper uses the case of deworming to discuss how evidence and theory can inform the prevention and treatment of communicable diseases.
