The END Fund
The END Fund fights neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases that thrive in conditions of rural poverty, where children and adults do not have access to clean water and basic sanitation. The END Fund tackles the five most prevalent NTDs: intestinal worms, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, trachoma, and river blindness – all of which can be treated by relatively inexpensive medicines donated by pharmaceutical companies and distributed by national administration programs.

Why it works: NTDs have devastating consequences but it’s surprisingly inexpensive to curtail their damaging effects. The END Fund strategy relies on proven therapies that often cost less than 50 cents per person per year.
