INMED is a registered in-country NGO of INMED Partnerships for Children, which has worked in Peru since the 1980s to build pathways for vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance. With programs focused on maternal and child health and nutrition, climate-smart adaptive agriculture, and neglected tropical disease treatment and control, INMED Andes has transformed the lives of millions of Peruvians.
INMED’s mobilization of a multi-sector effort to eliminate intestinal parasitic worm infection (soil-transmitted helminths or STH, a leading cause of anemia and malnutrition in millions of children) has become a major component of Peru’s National Plan for the Reduction and Control of Maternal and Child Anemia and Chronic Child Malnutrition. INMED Andes also is facilitating the use of INMED Aquaponics® to strengthen food security, income generation, and environmental protection
