Club - The END Initiative
The END (End Neglected Diseases) Initiative is a campaign fighting to end neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Our initiative supports Deworm the World, a campaign run by the non-profit organization Evidence Action. These diseases affect 1 in 7 people worldwide and have been cited as the #1 cause of inescapable poverty in the world. Our student organization aims to increase awareness on Northeastern’s campus, raise donations and encourage world leaders to make the elimination of these diseases an important part of their policy agendas. The END Initiative of Northeastern University also works closely with Northeastern’s Integrated Initiative for Global Health.
