TheWHO2020 Roadmap on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and the 2012 London Declaration on NTDs aim to ‘enable more than a billion people suffering from neglected tropical diseases to lead healthier and more productive lives’ and ‘chart a new course towards health and sustainability’. Two out of the five strategies for the prevention, control, elimination and eradication of NTDs set out in the WHO 2020 Roadmap involve sustaining and expanding existing drug donation programs to meet demand through to 2020. To this end, the governments of the US, UK and United Arab Emirates, theWorld Bank and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation along with 13 pharmaceutical companies, have announced the largest collaborative effort to date to combat NTDs.
