Key Messages & Graphics
We started the year strong, but we must keep momentum going. Use the messages and graphics in this toolkit to support your engagement throughout 2020. To boost engagement, personalize these posts to spotlight the diseases, communities & actions that you care about most.
One of the biggest challenges to beating these diseases is right in their name. Progress depends on making sure leaders know what NTDs are, who they affect, and why incredible progress is possible—and worth fighting for.
A: A group of preventable, treatable diseases that can rob people of their health, livelihood & sense of dignity. We owe it to the more than 1.5 billion people at risk around the world to #beatNTDs: For Good. For All
The fight against neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) is a fight against health inequity at its most extreme. Let’s remove this barrier preventing poor, rural and marginalized groups from reaching their full potential.
A world without NTDs could unlock a wave of economic progress for individuals, communities and nations.
Society’s treatment of people affected by NTDs is often as harmful as the diseases themselves. But norms can be changed.
To #beatNTDs, we need to invest in new and better tools to improve treatment, interrupt disease transmission, and channel limited resources where they are needed most.
Because of unprecedented partnerships across government, the private sector, philanthropy and civil society, the movement to end NTDs has become one of the largest & most successful public health initiatives in history.
2020 is a decisive year. Success in the next decade—for NTDs, health and beyond—will depend on bold vision & bolder action, starting now.
It’s time to tell leaders why a future without NTDs is right, smart and possible. On World NTD Day, let’s make our call to action heard around the world.
Help turn World NTD Day into an annual, sustainable milestone by calling for official recognition of the Day.
