Bringing Health to Idjwi: Partnership to Reduce NTDs

Commitment by

Amani Global Works

In 2015, Amani Global Works committed to decrease the prevalence of three Neglected-Tropical Diseases (NTDs), intestinal worms, schistosomiasis, and lymphatic filariasis, through the treatment of at-risk communities on the island of Idjwi, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The program adopts a comprehensive approach, including Mass Drug Administration, a school WASH program, and a bed net distribution program. With the help of 500 recruited and trained community health workers, this program will be implemented to treat virtually all 250,000 inhabitants of Idjwi across three years. Simultaneously, Amani Global Works will educate the community and health providers on NTD treatment and prevention.
