Peru’s 2nd National Deworming Day

INMED Andes has been hard at work preparing for Peru’s 2nd National Deworming Day on March 18. INMED has mobilized a national effort in partnership with Johnson & Johnson to help Peru become the first endemic country in 70 years to eliminate soil-transmitted helminth infection as a public health problem. The World Health Organization estimates that 1.5 billion people globally are infected with this insidious intestinal parasite.
