World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day

#WorldNeglectedTropicalDiseasesDay was celebrated on the 30th of January. NTDs are a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases that affect more than 1.7 billion people. As part of World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day, we remember the suffering that NTDs cause; recognize the achievements of the global community; and gather more support for the control, elimination, and eradication of these diseases.This year's message from Dr. Tedros, Director-General of the WHO, urged the world to "act now, act together and invest in neglected tropical diseases”. #NTDs #eliminateNTDs #globalhealth
