END7 is a campaign to see the end of 7 neglected tropical diseases by 2020. The 7 NTDs are ascariasis, hookworm, lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis), onchocerciasis (river blindness), schistosomiasis (bilharzia or “snail fever”), trachoma and trichuriasis (whipworm).

1 in 6 people worldwide, including over half a billion children, have these parasitic and bacterial diseases living and breeding in their bodies.

An integrated treatment approach, known as the rapid-impact package, which treats the seven most common NTDs through a combination of four drugs is supported by the Global Network.

This costs a mere 50¢ to treat and protect one child for one year.
