The vision of the Global Network is a world free of NTDs in which people are healthy to develop fully, learn effectively, raise families, and be productive members of their communities.
-To effectively advocate for NTDs and supporting policies
-To mobilize resources to support the control of NTDs
The Global Network began in 2004, when leading neglected tropical diseases experts jointly published a series of policy papers recommending a new approach for the control and elimination of the most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The papers highlighted the cost-savings and health-benefits of integrating the treatments for the five most common NTDs in an approach they call “rapid-impact.” Born out of the NTD Coalition at the Global Health Council, the Global Network was launched at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2006. The Global Network serves as a forum where NTD-focused organizations can work together to harmonize NTD control efforts and to build awareness, support and commitment among global policy makers and funding organizations.
