World NTDs Day 2023 | Know your theme :Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are widespread in the world’s poorest regions, where water safety, sanitation and access to health care are less than optimal. NTDs affect over 1 billion people globally and are caused by a variety of pathogens including viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and toxins. These diseases are “neglected” because they are almost absent from the global health agenda, receive little funding and are associated with stigma and social exclusion. They are diseases of neglected populations and perpetuate a cycle of poor educational outcomes and limited professional opportunities.

WHO relies on a diverse range of approaches to advance the global NTD agenda. This package of interventions includes the formulation of strategic, technical and normative guidance, the development of derivative tools to strengthen capacities of health staff, the implementation of five core strategies to decrease the burden of disease, the management of operations enabling programmes to function, and steering operational research in support of scientific and technical advancement. As highlighted in the NTD road map for 2021–2030, the fight against NTDs require concerted and cross-sectoral action.
