End Neglected Tropical Diseases in Asia (END in Asia)

FHI 360’s End Neglected Tropical Diseases in Asia (END in Asia) project assists national neglected tropical disease programs in selected countries to fill crucial gaps and strengthen efforts to control and eliminate several highly prevalent diseases.

Neglected tropical diseases affect the health of more than one billion people worldwide and put more than two billion people at risk, especially those living in poverty in remote rural areas or urban slums. Children are disproportionately affected and can live with the consequences their whole lives. Effects can include severe physical pain, irreversible disability, gross disfigurement, mental impairment and, in some cases, death. The END project currently assists ministries of health in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Papua New Guinea, Philippines and Vietnam, with possible expansion in the near future.
