In the past decade, substantial gains have been made against NTDs. Since 2010, 42 countries and territories have eliminated at least one NTD and 600 million fewer people are at risk of NTDs. This is thanks to a robust global partnership amongst disease-endemic country governments, implementing NGOs, and effective public-private and philanthropic partnerships, supported by technical guidance from the WHO.
This year, delegates attending the Seventy-third World Health Assembly endorsed the new WHO roadmap for neglected tropical diseases for 2021−2030. The new road map offers partners a blueprint for collaboration across sectors including WASH, One Health, disability, climate change, gender, education, and others. This will support NTD programs to contribute to national health systems which are resilient, sustainable, and adequately-resourced.
