SCI supports programs that treat people for parasitic worm infections such as schistosomiasis that cause short-term symptoms such as anemia, and may cause longer-term developmental problems. These worms are extremely inexpensive to treat. For more, see GiveWell's full report on deworming. For an accessible summary of deworming and SCI, see Charity Science.
