* We support programmes in-line with countries' strategic plan. As such, individuals other than school-age children may be treated.^ For every treatment provided against schistosomiasis, treatments are also offered against intestinal worm infections where both diseases are present. Treatment numbers are for schistosomiasis only and dating from 2010 when the current reporting system was established. Numbers correct as of January 2019. Some countries are expected to receive further treatments which are to be confirmed.
