Something special for humanity

SCI assists Ministries of Health across sub-Saharan Africa to control and eliminate schistosomiasis and soil transmitted helminths (STH: whipworm, hookworm, roundworm) from their population utilising the World Health Organization’s Drug Donation Programme for praziquantel and albendazole. 230 million people, one-third of the total population of Africa, need a regular annual treatment of praziquantel, and 400 million people need a regular annual treatment of albendazole, to eliminate these parasitic diseases from their bodies.

SCI treats children and at-risk adults for schistosomiasis and STH, preventing anaemia, impaired growth and development in children and the development of life-threatening conditions of bladder cancer, kidney malfunction or liver and spleen damage.

Located within Imperial College London, SCI combines implementation with world-class research to ensure their treatment programmes achieve maximum effectiveness.

Treating these diseases is a ‘best buy’ in public health according to The World Health Organization (WHO). SCI was rated a top charity by GiveWell, the leading Charity effectiveness comparison site, in 2011, 2012, 2013 and again in 2014.
