Short description of the organization and its work to control and eliminate NTDs
At the Inter-American Development Bank, we are engaging new and existing stakeholders: public and private, local and international, donors and implementers to raise the awareness and commitment necessary to finish the job of eliminating these diseases in Latin American and the Caribbean. Armed with cost-effective solutions, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases/Sabin Vaccine Institute, and the Pan American Health Organization/WHO, together with the endemic countries are leading the LAC NTD Initiative, a comprehensive regional agenda to address the treatment gap and implement other health measures for the benefit of all children and adults affected by these terrible diseases.
