World Health Organization (WHO) Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD)

The World Health Organization (WHO) Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) is a global programme of scientific collaboration that helps facilitate, support and influence efforts to combat diseases of poverty. GHIG worked with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) to develop a position paper on the way forward with regard to diagnostics for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). This paper will form the basis for a comprehensive strategy to combat NTDs through integrated diagnostics.
