Cross-cutting groups

NTDs have in the past been approached and managed in vertical disease silos in which individual diseases were considered in isolation.

Since inception, NNN has been uniquely positioned to identify common themes and develop cross-cutting approaches.

In this, NNN has anticipated the shifts towards integration, coordination and health system strengthening being adopted by WHO and many funders, and has strong, cross-cutting groups in many key areas, including WASH, Disease Management, Disability & Inclusion, Sustainable systems, One Health,  Skin-related NTDs, and Conflict & Humanitarian Settings.
