Something About Company
Our vision is a world free of preventable disease, in which everyone everywhere can reach their full potential. We were founded in 2002 with a £20m grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and started life at Imperial College London as the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative. Consistently ranked globally as one of the most cost-effective non-profit initiatives, in 2010 we received significant funding from the UK Department of International Development which has since been extended until 2022.

This year we became an independent organisation, and the SCI Foundation now works across multiple sectors in several Sub-Saharan African countries to deliver effective and robust health programmes that have a lasting impact.

What we do

Working in partnership with Governments, the SCI Foundation supports and facilitates public health programmes that reduce the impact of preventable diseases like parasitic worm infections.

We provide technical and financial support to Ministries of Health, in line with their own strategies and plans, to enhance sustainability and strengthen health systems within countries affected by these diseases.

To date, our team has supported 60% of all global schistosomiasis treatments and we are broadening our reach to coordinate with health programmes for other preventable diseases. This is in addition to our work supporting disease prevention measures such as water, sanitation and hygiene and the management of the impacts of these diseases on individuals.
