Across health and development, world awareness days offer an annual opportunity to mobilize greater attention, action and investment on priority issues, particularly in the countries and communities most directly affected.
NTDs were one of the few health and development issues that didn’t have a dedicated advocacy milestone until now.
World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day will bring together civil society advocates, community leaders, global health experts and policymakers working across the diverse NTD landscape, and unify partners behind our common goal: to #BeatNTDs. For good. For all.
30 Januaryis the anniversary of the landmark 2012 London Declaration on NTDs, which unified partners across sectors, countries and disease communities to push for greater investment and action on NTDs.
World NTD Day will not only honour this incredible show of support but inspire and rally partners each and every year.
