Development Banks Play A Role In Addressing NTDs

In a blog for the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, the authors outline how “[p]artners from multiple sectors, including development banks, play an important role in the response to control and eliminate NTDs.” Examining the activities of a number of specific banks, they conclude that “[t]he ability to bring together diverse partners and encourage cross-sectoral coordination is a hallmark that is unique to these development banks and is critical to meeting the 2020 NTD control and elimination goals” (Jain/Tantri, 4/23).
