Governments, NGOs Should Work To Implement WHO Public Health Interventions For NTDs
Epoch Times: The Global Impact of Neglected Tropical Diseases
César Chelala, international public health consultant
“…The NTDs seriously impact economic, social, and health indicators. … They may cost national economies hundreds of millions of dollars that could be avoided with effective prevention campaigns. … The WHO has developed five public health interventions to improve prevention, control, and eradication of NTDs: Improved disease management; preventive chemotherapy; vector ecology and management; veterinary public health services; and provision of safe water, sanitation, and hygiene. They should be implemented within a framework of increased state-level engagement, innovative financing, and universal coverage against NTDs” (3/2).
