Working to “END” neglected tropical diseases in our lifetime
1.7 billion people – or 1 in 5 globally – are affected by neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Despite this, they remain a relatively unknown burden that are yet to be effectively tackled.
Olam – comprising olam food ingredients (ofi) and Olam Global Agri (OGA) – has partnered with The END Fund – the only private philanthropic initiative solely dedicated to ending the most common NTDs – to improve the lives of people affected by these diseases. Together, we have been working across Olam's various supply chains in Africa - particularly cashew, as well as rice, grains, and other ingredients – to solve the burden of these diseases.
