World NTD Day 2022

30 January 2022 is the third annual World NTD Day.

World NTD Day serves as a catalyst to translate awareness into action, secure increased resources for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), and crucially facilitate political leadership and ownership of NTD programmes from affected countries. On 30 January we also celebrate World Leprosy Day, each year celebrated on the last Sunday of January. This international day is an opportunity to celebrate people who have experienced leprosy, raise awareness of the disease, and call for an end to leprosy-related stigma and discrimination.
