Webinar: Understanding the Gender Dimensions of Neglected Tropical Diseases

24 January, 2020

Dear all,

I am sure some members of the HIFA group will be interested to hear about a forthcoming webinar organized to mark the first (yes, first ever!) World NTD Day, which happens on Thursday 30th January.

Webinar: Understanding the Gender Dimensions of Neglected Tropical Diseases


The webinar will unpack the linkages between neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), gender and other social determinants of health, drawing on a recently published discussion paper. The event is part of a collaboration between the Access and Delivery Partnership/UNDP, the COUNTDOWN initiative/Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases.

All are welcome. If you are involved in implementation research, procurement or supply chain management in NTD programmes the organizers particularly encourage you to tune in.

FYI, you can also find more information about the inaugural World NTD Day here:


With best wishes to all,
