END7 is an awareness and fundraising campaign seeking to eliminate seven neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by 2020. These diseases include elephantiasis, river blindness, trachoma, snail fever, hookworm, whipworm and roundworm.Nearly one in six people around the world, including half a billion children, are infected with NTDs. NTD control provides a return on investment for nearly every major global development goal - from ending poverty and hunger to improving education and maternal/child health.There’s a simple and cost-effective plan. For about 50 pence, we can provide a simple packet of pills that treats and protects one person from all seven NTDs for up to a year. With your help, we can see the end of 7 diseases by 2020.
