Most people have never heard of diseases like elephantiasis, river blindness, snail fever, trachoma, roundworm, whipworm, or hookworm.  But one in six people globally, including more than half a billion children, have these organisms living and breeding inside their bodies.   

Yet the solution to these diseases is relatively simple: For only 50 cents, we can provide one person with treatment and protection against all seven NTDs for up to one year. 

Why a Network?

A lot of people ask us, why is it a Global Network?

Controlling and eliminating the seven most common NTDs is no simple task that can be accomplished by one organization or individual.  Successfully fighting these diseases of poverty requires a community effort – and the hard work and dedication of stakeholders at all levels, including pharmaceutical companies, non-profit organizations, governments, academic institutions, corporations and the general public.
