Mission Statement

The National Pediculosis Association, Inc. (NPA) is the only non-profit health education agency dedicated to protecting children from the misuse and abuse of potentially harmful lice and scabies pesticidal treatments. As part of its mission, the NPA works to encourage our nation's health and child care professionals to adopt standardized head lice management programs. We see this effort as a way of encouraging parents to accept their role in keeping their children lice-free while learning how to treat their children safely when lice unfortunately do occur. Moreover, an encounter with pediculosis provides an early opportunity to teach children responsible health behaviors --- lessons that become valuable as children mature into a world full of other behavioral health threats. Communities that promote head lice prevention programs demonstrate a commitment to health and wellness.

Description

The NPA is the first and only non-profit organization dedicated to protecting children from the potentially harmful pesticidal lice treatments and to improve head lice management standards worldwide through education, prevention, routine screening and early detection.
