Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases:
Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases is a global partnership tackling a range of diseases that impact the lives of over 1.7 billion people around the world. Many neglected tropical diseases are not well known but they debilitate, disfigure and can be fatal. They are also treatable and preventable though, and Uniting To Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases is working to put an end to NTDs within a decade.
