Celebrating World NTD Day!

27 Jan 2021

World NTD Day Logo

Globally, health and development partners have joined together to celebrate World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day on January 30th, a day of significance as it marked the signing of the London Declaration on NTDs in 2012. In 2020, 350+ partners signed on as supporters for the first ever World NTD Day, with support provided by the Crown Prince Court.

World NTD Day is a tremendous opportunity for partners to join together to mobilize greater attention, action and investment on priority issues related to neglected tropical disease. The Act to End NTDs | East program joins in this day annually to celebrate global progress on NTDs and share the stories of impact through the program.

In 2021, the theme is Face NTDs: End the Neglect. This year is particularly special, as we celebrate the launch of the World Health Organization NTD road map for 2021-2030. This new road map sets the next decade of global NTD targets and highlights the importance of sustainable programming and collaboration within and beyond health.
