On 1 March 2021 our first webinar took place: Partnership in the fight against NTDs in the next decade: what kind of innovation?

The goal of our event was to highlight the transition from disease-specific approaches to cross-cutting collaborations and the importance of health determinants in the fight against NTDs. Including success stories and examples from our partners, the transition to the more ambitious strategic thinking of the new roadmap was discussed.  Representatives from different sectors joined the panel to discuss approaches and innovations for more intersectoral interventions in the fight against NTDs (Dr. Mwele Malecela, WHO, Dr. Lutz Hegemann, Novartis, Dr. Alexander Schulze, SDC, Dr. Peter Steinmann, Swiss TPH).
