INMED Andes National Director Fernando Perez talks with children during recess time at a school in Cajamarca, Peru, where INMED is delivering deworming treatment and prevention education. Soil-transmitted helminths (intestinal parasitic worms) are the leading cause of anemia and malnutrition in millions of children in Peru. In partnership with Johnson & Johnson, INMED and INMED Andes play a key role in mobilizing a national campaign to eliminate this neglected tropical disease within the next 5 years.
