Development practitioners and scholars have often overlooked the importance of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in their work on water, sanitation and health (WASH), and epidemiologists have neglected the importance of WASH in their studies of NTDs.
In June 2017, COUNTDOWN brought together experts from different disciplines from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK, to share their perspectives and inspire innovative thinking to address the development and policy conundrum that NTDs present. This briefing offers the outcome of their discussions and outlines their recommendations.
