In addition to country-specific projects, Children Without Worms (CWW) supports projects centered around STH control at regional and international levels. These projects coordinate stakeholder efforts and identify and communicate best practices that promote comprehensive STH control.
CWW facilitates regional Technical Assistance Workshops to promote best practices around STH control programs and develop a sense of community amongst those implementing the programs. These workshops focus on monitoring and evaluation (M&E), development of national plans of action for STH control, comprehensive control of STH through improvements in WASH combined with deworming (the WASHED Framework), resource mobilization, and coordination of STH control across sectors.

Due to its relationships with numerous governmental and non-governmental that conduct deworming activities around the world, the World Health Organization requested that CWW plan and implement the Global NGO Deworming Inventory. This inventory collected data from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that conduct mass drug administrations to combat soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH), schistosomiasis, and lymphatic filariasis (LF) in 2009 and 2010.
