U.K. House Of Lords Discusses NTDs

The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End The Neglect” blog highlights a U.K. House of Lords discussion that took place last week on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). “…The Lords discussed a wide array of important topics, including: efforts to include NTDs in the post-2015 development agenda; cross-sector collaboration to create sustainable change; pharmaceutical company donations; the importance of scaling up cost-effective mass drug administration (MDA) programs; and the urgent need to mobilize resources from additional donor and endemic governments to close the NTD funding gap…” (2/13).
