Blog Reports On Annual World Water Day Congressional Advocacy Day On Capitol Hill

“On March 20, 2013, the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases participated in the 4th Annual World Water Day Congressional Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.,” the organization’s “End the Neglect” blog reports. “The Global Network participated in a day of meetings with Congressional offices, addressing the importance of providing safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for those in need,” the blog notes and recaps the day’s activities. “Advocacy opportunities like these allow the Global Network to reach beyond the traditional global health audience and ensure that congressional members are aware of the importance of tackling NTDs to achieve broader U.S. development goals,” the blog concludes (Schmidt, 3/26).
