Five years later, five years closer

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of preventable and treatable diseases that place an everyday burden on the poorest, most marginalized and most remote communities in the world.

Five years ago, leaders from diverse sectors came together and committed to bring an end to these diseases. The declaration this group signed, known as the London Declaration, is a leading example of how partnerships can create historic progress.

Today, we are closer than ever to a world without NTDs. Fewer people are suffering from these diseases than ever before and many countries are eliminating them entirely.

We can't stop now.

Stronger Partnerships

Five years ago today, WHO, pharmaceutical companies, donors, endemic countries and non-government organizations gathered to commit to the London Declaration on NTDs. Since then, this diverse partnership has worked across sectors and borders to unlock unprecedented resources – from drug donations to program financing – to combat NTDs around the world.
