Deworm the World Initiative is a program run by Evidence Action that advocates for, supports, and evaluates government-run school-based deworming programs.

As of June 2021, GiveWell estimates that Deworm the World Initiative can deworm 100 children at a cost of about $100, leading to a cumulative $1,100 in additional earnings over the course of the children’s lives (GiveWell 2020a; GiveWell 2020b).

Deworm the World Initiative has been a GiveWell top-rated charity every year since 2014. The Life You Can Save features Evidence Action in their list of “best charities” (The Life You Can Save 2021).
