• Conquering Kilimanjaro to END the Neglect

    Feb 05, 2016
    Last week I took to Central Park for my first run of the New Year. While this will be one of many for 2016, I couldn't help but feel nostalgic to this time last year when I started to train for climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Summiting Kilimanjaro had always been at the top of my bucket list and last July I had the wonderful opportunity to not only climb, but to do so on behalf of a cause that I care about deeply.

    As we take time to reflect on past decisions and motivations, and look forward to setting goals and ushering in new paths to follow, we often look for inspiration in others. In this installment of Listening Tour, Jonathan Rout of Church’s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) tells an inspiring tale of his commitment to helping others.

  • Balancing Needs and Wants

    Jan 07, 2016
    Typically in public health there is a consistent concern that the needs and wants of the community are not always aligned. Much of this is because the work is focused on prevention, when people do not always feel sick. Although pictures and people in the community suffering provoke certain emotions, many people see those affected and disassociate themselves from the potential risk.

Together, our collective generosity has ensured that through the END Fund’s investments to date, over 77 million of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people received the treatment they need to live more prosperous lives free of NTDs.
