This article provides an overview of the NTD NGDO Network. The NTD NGDO Network provides a global forum for non-governmental development organisations (NGDOs) and a wide range of other partners to share information and approaches on the elimination, prevention and control of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The primary mission of the network is to coordinate the activities of members in an attempt to bridge gaps in funding and programme support to endemic countries. The NTD NGDO Network is not a fundraising organisation, as the individual members will continue to raise funds to support specific activities. Rather, it is a convener and facilitator.
