NTD Envision - Envision is a project (USAID) aimed at providing assistance to national neglected tropical disease (NTD) control programs for the control and elimination of seven targeted NTDs: lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, three soil-transmitted helminths (roundworm, hookworm, whipworm) and trachoma. Envision's goal is to reduce the burden of targeted NTDs so that they are no longer a public health problem. END Fund - Kasai and Kivu Programs, NTD control and elimination, The END fund is dedicated to controlling and eliminating neglected tropical diseases. NTDs are diseases of poverty that debilitate, blind, disfigure and cause early death to the world's poorest people. They are a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases that thrive in conditions of rural poverty, where children and adults do not have access to clean water and basic sanitation. One or more of the most common NTDs globally affect over 1.5 billion people, including 875 million children. The END Fund focuses on tackling the five most prevalent NTDs, intestinal worms, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, trachoma, and river blindness, all of which can be treated by medicines generously donated by pharmaceutical companies for National Mass Drug Administration programs.
