​​​New NTD Data to Inform Large Scale Deworming in Ethiopia 

Girl in classroom in Zanzibar.jpg 94% of 535 surveyed districts in Ethiopia are endemic for either schistosomiasis and/or soil-transmitted helminths – the Neglected Tropical Diseases(NTDs) which are commonly found in school-children.

This was one finding from a national NTD mapping which has been used to inform school-based deworming programmes against STH in Ethiopia’s Oromia and Amhara regions. The findings will also shape integrated schistosomiasis and STH campaigns across other regions later in the year, and eventually campaigns will extend to all areas where children are at risk.
