The 8th Annual NTD NGDO Network Meeting is hosted by Helen Keller International and is supported by the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Imperial College London, RTI International and other NGO partners. The event will take place from Thursday, September 28th through Saturday, September 30th 2017 in King Fahd Palace Hotel, Dakar, Senegal.

The NNN is a global forum for nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working to control or eliminate NTDs. Our network now has over 60 member organisations working in more than 100 countries and spending annually around half a billion dollars in support of national NTD programmes. The NNN promotes comprehensive approaches that encompasses the breadth of interventions needed to control and eliminate NTDs and to this end is developing the BEST Framework for Action (Behaviour, Environment, Social Inclusion and Equity and Treatment and Care).

The NNN 2017 Conference will focus on how we, as the NGO community, come together to facilitate this comprehensive approach and generate solutions and actions that can be implemented in the programmes we support. This won’t be just another NTD conference – it’s your chance to roll up your sleeves, have your say and shape the end result.
