2022 World NTD Day Guide

World NTD Day

January 30th will mark the third annual World NTD Day and we need your help to spread the word!

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of parasitic and bacterial diseases that more than 1.7 billion people in the world still require treatment for. NTDs cause severe pain and long-term disability and lead to death for more than 170,000 people per year.
