From commemorating the 5-year anniversary of the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) at the NTD Summit to the launch of the Reaching the Last Mile Fund in Abu Dhabi, 2017 has been a landmark year not only for the END Fund, but for the NTD space as whole.
The END Fund is proud to be a part of a passionate and committed movement that, this year, announced 1 billion people were reached with NTD treatments in 2016 and millions more no longer need treatment because disease elimination targets were met in country after country by 2017.
Watch our video to learn more about the END Fund’s 2017, which included supporting partners to provide over 160 million NTD treatments (valued at over $330 million!) to more than 90 million people at risk of NTDs in 23 countries. We were honored to launch new initiatives in areas previously lacking NTD support, including Somalia, Afghanistan, and Eritrea. And we continued to cherish our role in supporting a community of activist philanthropists who dedicate their talents, time, and resources to be ambassadors and catalysts for ending these diseases.
Without you, none of this would have been possible.
From all of us at the END Fund, thank you, and we look forward to continued partnership in 2018!
