Building on a decade of progress in water, sanitation and hygiene to control, eliminate and eradicate neglected tropical diseases

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are essential for the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

The forthcoming NTD road map ‘Ending the neglect to attain the Sustainable Development Goals: a road map for neglected tropical diseases 2021–2030’ encourages cross-sectoral collaboration and includes cross-cutting targets on WASH.

This commentary reflects on collaborative efforts between the NTD and WASH sectors over the past years and encourages strengthened partnerships to support the new road map and achieve the 2030 agenda ambition of leaving no one behind.
