January 26, 2022

RSVP

World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day (WNTDD) will be celebrated on Sunday 30 January 2022. To mark this celebration, WHO is organizing a virtual event, calling on everyone to address the inequalities that characterize NTDs. WNTDD is an opportunity to re-energize the momentum to end the suffering from these 20 diseases that are caused by a variety of pathogens including viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and toxins.

The day provides an opportunity to focus on the millions of people who have limited or no access to prevention, treatment and care services.

Join us to celebrate the event on 26 January 2022 14:00–15:00 (CET).
