To bolster Rwanda’s plan to end schistosomiasis by 2024, we will provide Rwanda, in partnership with The END Fund, with 8 million additional tablets of the standard medication for the treatment of schistosomiasis per year. The tablets are needed for treating adults endangered by schistosomiasis and will complement our annual donation for the treatment of school-aged children.
