Launch of “Ending the neglect to attain the Sustainable Development Goals: a road map for neglected tropical diseases 2021–2030”.
The new road map is a strategic document that aims to strengthen the global response to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by setting targets for control, elimination and eradication of 20 diseases associated with poverty.
The road map calls all NTD stakeholders to rally around a common workplan and promotes three main shifts: from process to impact; from vertical programmes to cross-cutting, cross-sectoral approaches; and from external- to country-driven agendas.
People are at the centre of the action: youth and community engagement are essential to fill service delivery gaps and strengthen and sustain health systems.
The launch will provide opportunities to share country stories, perspectives and experiences from across sectors, including NTD response to COVID-19.
