UK Coalition against NTDs: Annual Report 2013

28 Nov 2013

Report for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG)

In May this year the World Health Assembly (WHA) passed a Resolution on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), a major milestone in the efforts to raise the profile of NTDs and express disease control policies that endemic countries should adopt. This landmark resolution calls on World Health Organisation (WHO) Member States and international partners to intensify their support to control, eliminate and eradicate NTDs.

This report gives 10 recommendations to the UK government to control and eliminate NTDs in partnership with at-risk communities.
