The neglected tropical disease non-governmental development organisation network (NNN): the value and future of a global network aiming to control and eliminate NTDs

The neglected tropical disease non-governmental development organisation network (NNN, www.ntdngdonetwork.org) is a global forum for non-governmental development organisations (NGDOs) working to control or eliminate neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) including leprosy, lymphatic filariasis (LF), onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis (SCH), soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH) and trachoma.

Each of these diseases has elimination as a target where feasible and each receives generous donations of medicines from the pharmaceutical industry.

A group of people stand outside on a sunny day. They are being trained in mass drug administration and a woman in the middle holds a tall pole for measuring doses. She wears a bright green patterned dress and pink hat.
