leaders of some of the world’s largest economies — members of the G7 — have committed
to invest in the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs),
the most common diseases of the world's poorest people. While some of the G7
countries have stepped forward to fund treatment programs, an additional $220
million is needed for these vital programs annually over the next five years.
Add your name to ask G7
leaders to increase their funding for NTD treatment programs so that these
diseases can be controlled and eliminated by 2020.
