WWF works with remote communities around the world to help protect their natural surroundings, including the wildlife. In some locations, like Mozambique, WWF promotes a better understanding among people about how to manage their natural resources and how proper hygiene practices, sanitation and environmental stewardship can prevent disease and advance a sustainable standard of living. WWF believes that among the most telling indicators of conservation success is that local communities emerge as both stewards and beneficiaries of the lands where they reside. In short, healthy communities help preserve a healthy planet.
Since 1992, Johnson & Johnson has worked with WWF to support healthy ecosystems, and healthy people, all around the world—most recently with the hygiene and sanitation projects in Mozambique.
More than 800 million children around the world are at risk of infection with Soil Transmitted Helminthes (STH), a type of intestinal worm, yet this disease remains one of the world’s most neglected health issues. Diseases like STH can be prevented with a basic sanitation infrastructure and proper hygiene education in local schools and communities.
