On 25 June 2020, Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) will host a high-level, virtual event called Power the Partnership: End the Neglect.

Power the Partnership (14.00 - 16.00 BST / 13:00 - 15:00 GMT): We will celebrate the achievements of the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and showcase how NTD interventions are powering progress in SDG 3.

The session will be moderated by Femi Oke and Henry Bonsu. Join us as we hear from those who are at the center of shaping the global neglected tropical disease agenda.
