USAID’s flagship implementing partner-led programs have released a resource to help countries safely restart NTD programs according to global guidance.

This document can be found on the NTD Toolbox: Practical Approaches to Implementing WHO Guidance for Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) Programs in the Context of COVID-19: Mass Drug Administration (MDA)

This practical guide complements the precautionary measures for re-starting NTD activities in global guidance, providing ideas and real-world examples on applying those to mass drug administration for NTDs.

National-level NTD programs can use this resource when developing country-specific plans and procedures, training materials, and supervision checklists, adapting them to their national and local contexts.
