Focus Area: 
Eliminate Neglected Tropical Diseases


We succeed when at least one neglected tropical disease is eliminated in four African countries. Our Investments in this Focus Area are spread throughout Africa.

See detailed investment criteria for this Focus Area...

We invest in organizations implementing these approaches:

  • Accelerate and scale integrated and cost-effective NTD elimination and eradication efforts

  • Ensure water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is incorporated into NTD elimination efforts

  • Stimulate greater public and private sector funding for NTDs

We measure these outcomes to assess our impact:

  • More funding for NTDs

  • World Health Organization (WHO) verification of elimination of one or more NTDs
