Uniting To Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases Releases Progress Report On London Declaration

Global Network of Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End the Neglect”: Fourth Progress Report on The London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases Released
The Global Network of NTDs discusses the release of the Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases’ scorecard and report on the London Declaration on NTDs, which “underscores the urgency and the opportunity before us to control and eliminate the most common NTDs.” According to the blog post, the report “finds that many [NTD target] deadlines have been missed. … Progress against NTDs over the last four years has accelerated, but not fast enough. As we approach the fifth anniversary of the London Declaration, the 2012 pledge to end NTDs by 2020, we must assist countries to scale up programs to ensure no one is left behind” (5/4).
