Mega-Commitment Partners Deworm 20 Million School Age Children in 2009: AIR, Deworm the World, Feed The Children, the World Food Programme Exceed Their CGI Commitment Target in Year One Two-fold
Date:10/15/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- CGI education mega-commitment partners will reach 20 million school-age children across 26 countries in 2009, exceeding the original commitment target for year one of 10 million children in 19 countries.

A chronic condition, parasitic worms affect over 400 million school-age children worldwide, harming their health, nutrition and cognitive development, and threatening their educational access and learning.

Mass school-based deworming is a safe, simple and cost-effective solution. At a cost of less than $0.50 per child per year, deworming can reduce school absenteeism by 25% and is one of the most cost-effective methods of improving school participation ever rigorously evaluated. An education policy priority, deworming is a crucial step towards achieving universal primary education and improving children's long-term productivity.

These CGI partners support and advocate for government action leading to the development of strategically targeted, sustainable, school-based deworming programs, focusing on the at-risk school-age populations in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America. With additional funding, coverage will be increased to reach 75 million children over three years.

If there are any "silver bullets" or "best buys" for the education sector, then deworming is surely one.
