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 (CNNTD) is a vibrant network of interested Canadian individuals and organisations, mobilizing Canadian action to end suffering from NTDs.

The members of the CNNTD work together with the following aims:  1) to  generate interest and support from the Canadian public about NTDs;  2) to provide insight and support to integrate NTD action into existing Canadian global health efforts; 3) and to mobilise resources for research and programme implementation.

The goals and activities of the CNNTD align with global efforts to address the health burden of NTDs globally and ensure that no one is left behind.
