END7 Donor Impact
END7 mobilized more than 26,000 donations totaling over $1.2 million to help accelerate the fight against NTDs. One hundred percent of END7 donations benefitted NTD treatment programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America to support mass drug administration and related activities that addressed the seven most common NTDs, with incredible results:
- We partnered with Honduras’ Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, PAHO, WFP, Operation Blessing and MAMA Project to deliver deworming pills to more than one million schoolchildren in Honduras.
- We supported the training of more than 90,000 community health workers to carry out a national NTD treatment campaign in Myanmar led by the Ministry of Health in partnership with the World Health Organization country office, UNICEF, the Myanmar Maternal and Child Welfare Association, Women’s Affairs Federation, Red Cross, Fire Brigade and the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
- In Côte d’Ivoire, more than 2.5 million people learned how to stop the spread of NTDs through an effort led by the Ministry of Health and Helen Keller International.
- With our support, the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and CASA taught more than 1,500 people with elephantiasis in India how to care for their painfully swollen limbs and educated more than half a million more of their neighbors in West Bengal State about disease prevention.
- END7 donations helped launch a five-year push to eliminate elephantiasis in Timor-Leste led by the Ministry of Health.
- We filled a funding gap to support the first NTD treatment programs in six districts in Indonesia, carried out by the Ministry of Health with collaborating partners including the Ministry of Education, World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, the U.S. Agency for International Development’s ENVISION project and GlaxoSmithKline.
- In Peru, INMED Partnerships for Children and the Peruvian Institute for Parasitology and Clinical Experiences, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Development and local health authorities, used END7 support to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of deworming campaigns in an effort to reach all children at risk.
- END7 funding helped expand NTD treatment to Kenya’s hard-to-reach Coast Province through a mass drug administration carried out by the Ministry of Health and MAP International with support from the World Health Organization (WHO).
- We helped transport medicine to reach 700,000 children in Vietnam through a program carried out by the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education with medicine donated by World Vision Australia and technical support from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
- To fight snail fever in one of Sierra Leone’s most affected regions, we supported a treatment campaign in the Western Rural Area trainings for community health workers carried out by Helen Keller International with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Ministry of Education Science and Technology, National School and Adolescent Health Program, Neglected Tropical Disease Program, District Health Management Team and Rural Western Area District Council.
- To scale up Nigeria’s fight against NTDs to reach nearly six million more people, we supported ambitious treatment, training and education efforts spearheaded by the Mission to Save the Helpless (MITOSATH) in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Health, the Bauchi State Ministry of Health and the END Fund in Bauchi State and by Sightsavers International in partnership with the Kebbi State Ministry of Health, the Kebbi State Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Kebbi State.
