Global Community Can Make Progress Against NTDs
Vanguard: Together, we can make progress against neglected tropical diseases
John Kufuor, former president of Ghana, former African Union Commission chair, and a special envoy for the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases
“…As a former President of Ghana, I encourage Heads of State and Ministers to join the global effort against NTDs and work hand in hand with the global community to ensure every child and person who needs treatments receives them.

By doing this, we can provide comprehensive care to all of our citizens…” (4/15).
