Tackling neglected tropical diseases through human security

“Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” This Japanese proverb encapsulates the many challenges on the road to achieving human security for all—life without want, without fear, and in dignity through the fulfilment of basic needs—and emphasizes the need for creativity, flexibility, and constant innovation to achieve this broad-ranging mandate. Such a creative focus on human security and people-centred development can help fast-track efforts to build healthy, resilient communities around the world.
