Introducing the NTD index on the ALMA Scorecard for Accountability and Action at the African Union

Uniting to Combat NTDs

Showcase submission:

At the African Union summit in January 2018, Uniting to Combat NTDs presented African leaders with a new NTD index and bespoke country profiles for African countries to show progress against the five NTDs amenable to preventive chemotherapy.


In partnership with the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA), the NTD index was added to their established Scorecard for Accountability and Action.


This scorecard is personally reviewed by African heads of state every year, putting NTDs alongside malaria and maternal and child health as top health priorities for the continent. Learn more:
