We were pleased to join world leaders, influencers and fellow advocates at Women Deliver 2019, where we drew much needed attention to neglected tropical diseases. Below are images showing our presence at the conference, as well as information about the high-level events we ran and our interactive exhibition. You can find our Women Deliver briefing document, and other resources, at the bottom of this page.
The Great Pub Quiz
on neglected tropical diseases
Can you tell your schistosomiasis
from your onchocerciasis?
Don’t miss it
13.00-15.00 in Room 213, Level 2 VANCOUVER CONVENTION CENTER
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) affect over a billion people – that’s one in seven of the world’s population and yet few people know what they are.
We are going to change all of that! This fun-filled pub quiz will educate and inform you about NTDs and will show how NTDs affect you and your programmes, whichever field you work in.
Featuring pub landlord, Henry Bonsu
as well as pub food and drinks.

Women Deliver conference
Women Deliver is the world’s largest conference focusing on gender equality and the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls. We had a strong presence to raise awareness of the impact of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) on women and girls and called on more partners to join the NTDs movement and help bring these diseases to an end.
Our exhibition booth
We ran an interactive exhibition booth – highlighting how NTD interventions can improve the lives of women and girls in some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities. The exhibition recreated the sights, sounds and smells that are often found in places where NTDs are endemic. Our online quiz and partnership representatives also helped to educate attendees.
