NTDs should be neglected no longer

The Canadian Network for NTDs is a network of interested Canadian individuals and organizations who aim to mobilize Canadian action to end suffering from NTDs.

Our mission is to generate interest and support from the Canadian public about NTDs, and advocate for the elimination of NTDs to be a key part of Canada’s global health priorities. Our network of global health practitioners and researchers provide world-class insight and support for Canadian policy on NTDs.

We believe that addressing NTDs is the missing piece to improved global health. Canadian investment to eliminate NTDs will help reduce global health inequities and establish more resilient health systems.
