The END Fund

About the organization

The END Fund is the world’s leading collaborative philanthropic investment vehicle dedicated to controlling and eliminating neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). NTDs are parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases – including intestinal worms, river blindness, trachoma, schistosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis – that affect over 1.7 billion people globally. The END Fund’s vision is to ensure people can live healthy and prosperous lives free of the risk of NTDs.

Since our founding in 2012 through 2019, with our partners, the END Fund has provided over 920 million treatments for NTDs worth more than $1 billion. In 2019 alone, we reached more than 121 million people with more than 196 million NTD treatments, representing an almost 10-fold increase from 2012. The END Fund works globally in over 25 countries, with a primary emphasis in Africa.
