Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End the Neglect”: Measuring Success: Your Guide to the New Global NTD Indicator
Liz Powell, communications associate for the Global Network and the Sabin Vaccine Institute, discusses the inclusion of an indicator on neglected tropical diseases in the Sustainable Development Goals. She notes, “The indicator, ‘number of people requiring interventions against NTDs,’ got the green light at a meeting of the [Inter-agency and Expert Group on the Sustainable Development Goals (IAEG-SDGs)] in October. … More unified advocacy from the NTD community will be needed to ensure that the final document is adopted in March 2016 without change” (11/10).
