World NTD Day 30 January


30 January 2024 - 30 January 2024


With thanks to GLIDE who are coordinating the 2024 campaign for World NTD Day, working with WHO, Reaching the Last Mile, Uniting, and all partners, the theme for World NTD Day on 30 January 2024 will be Unite, Act, Eliminate, in recognition of the global call from President Embaló.

Please keep an eye out on the World NTD Day website and the WHO World NTD Day website – these will be updated with messaging, assets and activation ideas in the coming weeks.

Unite, Act, Eliminate

Join on 30 January 2024, for the fourth annual #WorldNTDDay.

We want to end neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). To achieve this, we need sustainable financing for NTDs.

Investing in NTDs is a global health and development success story. So far, 50 countries have eliminated an NTD, showing progress is possible. In 2020, 600 million fewer people required interventions against NTDs than in 2010. Yet, for some time, a lack of resources has been seen as a significant barrier to the control, elimination, and eradication of NTDs. This challenge has only been intensified by COVID-19 which has caused severe delays and disruption to NTD programmes, as well as a massive repurposing and diversion of resources

This year, we invite you to:

ASK: Let’s make our voices heard. Ask governments, world leaders, and those in power to act now, act together and invest in neglected tropical diseases.

ACT: Everyone has a key role to play. By bringing renewed attention to NTDs, building political will and mobilising resources, and putting individuals and communities at the centre of the response, we can collectively generate the attention and resources needed to deliver against the targets outlined in the WHO 2030 NTD road map and SDG3. This includes eradicating two diseases, eliminating one disease in 100 countries, and decreasing the number of people requiring interventions for NTDs by 90%.
