Over the last 20 years, various parties (including many STH Coalition members) have successfully increased the level of attention given to STH control. Since declaring STH as a public health problem in 2001, the World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a strategic plan outlining Targets & Milestones that serve as a foundation for a global STH control strategy. Each year WHO publishes a report on the Number of People Treated within STH control programs.
