NTD treatments lower disease risks for tens of millions
While there’s still a long way to go before declaring victory on NTDs, END in Africa has helped tens of millions of people who had been at high risk for contracting lymphatic filariasis and blinding trachoma. This means that millions no longer have to worry that they or their loved ones will go blind or suffer from painful, swollen limbs. It means they can continue working and taking care of their families and their children can continue going to school. It means hope, stronger families, healthier communities, and a much better chance for a high quality of life.
