Deworming Program

Partner with us in this fight! Together we can make a difference!

Although intestinal worms is no longer a problem in most developed countries, most kids in poor countries have worms, and the result is anemia, malnutrition and sicknesses that cause absences from school. Worms are transmitted via eggs which pass out of infected individuals in feces or urine which then contaminate soil or water. Ingestion or skin contact with transmission stages can result in an infection, depending on the species.

Worms live in the intestines, liver and/or blood vessels surrounding the urinary tract and do not multiply in the body. Their numbers increase through repeated infection from renewed contact with contaminated soil or water. Worm infections cause health problems that both impair children's health physical and cognitive development and limit attendance and performance in school, hampering a child's development and a chance at brighter future.

Deworming children in the third world is an economic and educational priority. It is a crucial step towards achieving universal primary education and improving children's long-term productivity. If left untreated, infected children will contribute less to the economic development of their community as adults. One of the best ways of eradicating worms in an impoverished community is to improve sanitation and public health.

Clinicians of the World deworming program is safe, simple and cost-effective.

Our Deworming Program involves:
1. Building Latrines in the community.
2. Building deep-seated wells to provide clean running water.
3. Educating the community about simple hand-washing and cleanliness of food.
4. Treating children with one anti-helminthic pill twice a year.

Health Education and Specialty Training Program

We believe that the best solutions are local. The Health Education and Specialty Training Program was created to promote health awareness and encourage individuals to assume responsibility for their own health. This program:

Provides free health screenings and education, with a focus on the underserved population.

Helps to build health personnel capacity in developing countries by providing high-quality practical specialty training for medical professionals.

Community Health Outreach Program

The Community Health Outreach Program is dedicated to providing essential health resources to underserved communities who have little or no access to medical care and who are less likely to have contact with a health care provider. Emphasis is placed on:

Health promotion

Prevention through health education, medical screening services, such as blood pressure, risk for heart disease and diabetes both domestically and internationally.

Our goal is to foster not only health, but self-reliance by enabling poor individuals to recognize symptoms, seek treatment, and prevent further illness.
