Five years ago I was one of the people that gathered together in London in a groundbreaking meeting to talk about neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has boosted commitment to tackling neglected tropical diseases with new grants to help wipe out trachoma in Mali and Niger.
The organisations were rewarded for their work in making sustainable improvements to treatment distribution to combat NTDs.
The grant will have a big impact on the future of communities in Kebbi State in Nigeria and enable Sightsavers to get one step closer to eliminating NTDs.
Sightsavers President HRH Princess Alexandra was at the Neglected Tropical Diseases NGDO Network to celebrate the progress made in the treatment of NTDs.
After eleven weeks of hectic preparation, fundraising and training, we are finally off to Tanzania for what is sure to be an unforgettable adventure.
An event was hosted on 10 May an event to celebrate the progress made towards meeting the Neglected Tropical Disease elimination global targets in Nigeria.
Progress has been made in the fight against neglected tropical diseases, but the community has a challenge ahead if it is to meet targets. What can be done?
