Women working to defeat neglected tropical diseases

Women play a crucial role in the on-going fight against neglected tropical diseases, a role which often goes unrecognized and unrewarded.

In Zanzibar – off the coast of Tanzania – most of their community drug distributors are women. They are very effective at providing treatment and are valued within their communities.

Along with providing treatment, they play a vital role in teaching the children about hygiene and sanitation.
