We launched the award-winning END7 campaign in 2012 to build a grassroots movement to end the seven most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). With your support, we mobilized funding to support programs that treated more than 50 million people, helped increase US and UK funding for NTDs and spread awareness of the global NTD burden. Now, five years later, we are concluding the END7 campaign. We are grateful for the support of all of our followers, student groups and generous donors who made the campaign such a success.

India Launches Massive Public Health Campaign to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis

WASHINGTON, D.C. — January 14, 2015 — India was certified polio-free in 2014. Today, the country has its sights set on another public health victory: the elimination of lymphatic filariasis, a neglected tropical disease (NTD) that threatens nearly half of its population. To meet this ambitious goal, the Indian Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MOHFW) has launched one of the largest public health campaigns in India’s history to provide more than 400 million people with free medication that could protect them from lymphatic filariasis.
