The year 2016 marks the 10th year anniversary of the USAID Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) Program. Over the past decade, the NTD Program has supported the delivery of more than 1.6 billion treatments leveraging $11.1 billion in donated drugs in 31 countries. This program represents an outstanding example of what can be achieved through public-private partnerships. Ten years ago, the USAID NTD Program delivered 36 million treatments to people in need. Now, in 2016, the program has expanded, delivering 299 million treatments each year.
Over 300 global partners came together for a special event on September 30, 2016, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the USAID NTD Program.
