Short description of the organization and its work to control and eliminate NTDs

World Vision International supports the control and elimination of the major Neglected Tropical Diseases- STH, LF, Schistosomiasis, Foodborne Tramatodes, Trachoma and Onchocerciasis- broadly through their global Maternal Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN) and Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programs. 

World Vision also partners with the Ministries of Health and World Health Organization (WHO) to address resource gaps in specific NTD country programs by supporting Mass Drug Administrations through donations of Anthelminthics, health workforce capacity building, mobilization of communities and carrying out monitoring and evaluation.
