6 months ago
The new WHO-NTD Roadmap 2030 proposes innovative approaches to tackle 20 infectious diseases. NTDs affect over 1 billion people worldwide, causing pain and disability, with lasting health, social and economic consequences for individuals and societies. The roadmap aims to close gaps between multiple diseases by integrating approaches and interventions into national health systems and across different sectors. There are major gaps in current intervention packages and opportunities to support intervention packages for diagnosis, treatment and delivery of other services. A panel discussion on opportunities for improving health management systems though increased digitalisation will be held. Field reports from endemic countries, integrated systems for control, data analysis, possible improvements in supply chains will be presented.
