Pres. Clinton Announces Commitment From Inter-American Development Bank, Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, and Pan American Health Organization to Mobilize $30 Million to Fight NTDs in the Americas at CGI Conference
Date:9/23/2009

"NTDs are some of the most common disabling and disfiguring diseases afflicting the poorest people living in the Americas," said Kari Stoever, Managing Director of the Global Network. "This commitment will provide more than 30 million people suffering from NTDs with preventive treatment and other public health services, while also raising awareness and political will for further action."

NTDs produce extreme poverty through their impact on children's physical and cognitive development, pregnancy outcomes and worker productivity. Based on their prevalence, soil transmitted helminths and Chagas disease cause the greatest NTD burden in the Americas, followed by dengue, schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, trachoma, leprosy, and lymphatic filariasis. More than 230 million people in the region are currently living with these devastating diseases. However, with a firm commitment from the public and private sectors, it is possible to eliminate onchocerciasis (river blindness), lymphatic filariasis and trachoma throughout the region, as well as schistosomiasis in the Caribbean.

This partnership is a concrete example of how organizations and governments can work together to support new investments to reach control and elimination goals under President Obama's Global Health Initiative. The new Regional Fund to be established with the money raised will specifically go to efforts in Latin America and the Caribbean. The funds will support country ownership and capacity, and beneficiaries include national governments, national programs and non-profits. The partnership will promote integration with existing primary care initiatives such as vitamin A and immunization campaigns, and encourage collaboration with other programs to fight global diseases.

The IDB has been a leader in championing this approach through its efforts to create new linkages between water and sanitation projects and public health progra
