    Assessing factors associated with neglected tropical diseases and malnutrition among school-aged population in rural Rwanda
    Role Description: It is estimated that NTDs infect over 1.5 billion people, or 24 per cent of the world’s population. In Africa, intestinal worms are the most common NTDs among children. Untreated NTDs lead to cognitive impairment and developmental disabilities, and severe forms can cause malnutrition and death. Close to half of Africa’s current population is under 18, and school-aged youth are the population group most affected by NTDs. As the child population grows to reach an anticipated 1 billion by 2055, not tackling NTDs would be a missed opportunity and the price of inaction would be unbearable. Rwanda is one of African countries committed to end NTDs by 2024. In collaboration with Move Up Global, Dr. Anatole Manzi developed Beta ComScreen application used by the community health workers to screen students for common NTDs. This project aims at using Beta Com Screen data to assess factors associated with neglected tropical diseases and malnutrition among the school-aged population in rural Rwanda.
