Our goal
USAID’s Act to End NTDs | West Program supports neglected tropical disease (NTD) elimination and control efforts in 11 countries, as well as activities aimed at mainstreaming NTD programs into national health systems.

Diseases gone

Countries strong

What's new

This workshop will help in-country program managers have better understanding and use of available tools for implementation of high-quality diseases-specific assessments (DSAs).
In the past, our understanding of the demographics of these workers has been limited, but with increased access to sex-disaggregated data, we begin to explore the implications of gender and sex for the success of NTD front-line workers.
Experts from USAID’s Act to End Neglected Tropical Diseases | West program consortium will participate in the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases (COR-NTD) at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland on November 18—19, 2019. COR-NTD meeting aims to strengthen the community of NTD researchers, program implementers and their supporters to address knowledge gaps in a coordinated way, and to inform the agenda of future NTD research. Join the conversation online by using #COR_NTD19.
The American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene's (ASTMH) 68th Annual Meeting takes place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland on November 20 - 24.
