Launch Toolbox "Neglected Tropical Diseases"

the World Health Organisation (WHO) currently lists 20 diseases in the group of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), which primarily affect people in the Global South; women and children are disproportionately affected. These diseases have devastating health, social and economic consequences for more than 1.7 billion people worldwide, with many millions dying each year. Left untreated, NTDs  can lead to chronic conditions, disability or even death. In view of the burdens and effects on the health of people suffering from NTDs, MEDBOX's NTD Toolbox aims to continue to promote and intensify knowledge and awareness of this topic at the political, public and civil society level. The Toolbox includes material regarding clinical aspects & diagnositics, information & education material or preventiion and control.  Please find our new NTD Toolbox here
