On 30 January 2021, Sightsavers joined global celebrations to mark the fight against neglected tropical diseases.
The road map lays out the World Health Organization's strategic and programmatic response to NTDs in the next decade.
The most effective way to tackle health issues is to put affected communities in the driving seat – COVID-19 is no different.
Biruck Kebede, who leads Sightsavers’ NTD work in Ethiopia, explains how data can help to eliminate diseases such as trachoma.
More than 20,000 people are to be screened in the first surveys since NTD programmes were put on hold because of COVID-19.
Sightsavers’ director for programme operations, Joy Shu’aibu, has been named an Inspiring Communicator for 2020.
