In light of the one year anniversary of The London Declaration, a series of events took place in London this week that that continued to highlight the important role neglected tropical disease (NTD) control and elimination plays on the global health and development agenda.
This month marks the one-year anniversary of the London Declaration—an unprecedented pledge by a group of public and private partners to control or eliminate 10 NTDs by 2020. This includes an uptick in drug donations, research and development and bilateral support for NTD programs around the world.
It’s not easy being a woman in most parts of the world. Women in developed countries like the United States often have their hands full with working full-time, caring for children and managing their households.
