Blog Examines Fight Against NTDs In Burundi

The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End the Neglect” blog examines the fight against neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in Burundi, writing, “In 2007, the Legatum Foundation, an international private investment organization that promotes sustainable development throughout the world agreed to fund the treatment of NTDs in Burundi and brought together several partners to assist Burundi’s Ministry of Health.” The blog notes, “It has been over five years since the Burundi NTD Control Plan was implemented, and its success is visible throughout the country” and provides a link to the network’s “A Better Future for Burundi” video, “which highlights all the accomplishments in controlling NTDs in Burundi” (5/4).
