“…In the wake of the Ebola crisis and in preparation for the Sustainable Development Goals, these success stories [discussed in the third progress report of the London declaration on NTDs] are important best practice examples for the global health community as it rethinks how to effectively deliver sustainable programs. … Country ownership doesn’t just encourage policymakers to come up with strategies to reach their entire populations with health interventions but it also enables them to practice good resource management…” (Filou, 7/20).
