Global NTD Epidemiology and Challenges

More than a billion people, about 1/6th of the world’s population, mostly in developing countries-are infected with one or more of the neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Several national and international programs (e.g., the World Health Organization’s Global NTD Programs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Global NTD Program, the United States Global Health Initiative, the United States Agency for International Development’s NTD Program, and others) are focusing on NTDs, to control or eliminate them. It is crucial to identify the risk factors of major NTDs, and describes the global burden of the diseases in terms of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs).

  • Optimizing surveillance
  • Evaluation strategies
  • Prevalence and trends
  • DALY trends for NTDs
  • transmission dynamics
  • optimal control
  • Risk factors
