APPG report launched

The NTD Report for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases was launched on 6th November. 

The report was launched by the Lords' Speaker Baroness D'Souza, Baroness Northover, Government Spokesman in the House of Lords on International Development and Government Whip and Dr Lorenzo Savioli,  Director, Department of Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases, World Health Organization. 

The report charts the progress of NTDs through 2012 reflecting on highlights such as the UK Government’s commitment to provide funding of £240 million to NTDs over 4 years and the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases which united pharmaceutical companies, donors, endemic countries and non-government organisations in their fight against NTDs.

The report also serves as the UK NTD Coalition's 2012 Annual report.
