About the Canadian Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases

Neglected Tropical Diseases impact more than a billion people world-wide, primarily those who are poor and marginalized.  The Canadian Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases (CN-NTD) provides a platform for a diverse group of Canadian stakeholders whose work addresses neglected tropical diseases.  Partners include NGOs, researchers and others. The aim of CN-NTD is to foster collaboration, engage decision-makers, mobilize resources and highlight opportunities for Canadians to play a leading role in the elimination of NTDs.  The goals and activities of the CN-NTD align with global efforts to address the health burden of NTDs globally and ensure that no one is left behind.
