NNN and the WHO NTD Road map - member support to national programmes
This webinar session will highlight what member organizations are doing to support countries in implementing the 2030 road map, following closely the 2021 NNN Conference Special Session. The 2021 session saw leaders from national governments, NGOs, and research organizations discuss changing expectations and roles of partners in advancing country ownership. In the 2022 session, the NNN seeks to directly engage with its membership and community base, in further advancing this discussion to produce an NNN statement on equitable partnerships to end NTDs.

This webinar will last 75 minutes.
