Framework for the establishment of the expanded special project for elimination of neglected tropical diseases.

Abstract

Taking into account the full advantage of effective donated medicines, the goal of ESPEN is to contribute to an accelerated reduction in the burden of disease of the 5 PC-NTDs by providing technical support to endemic countries in their efforts to control and eliminate targeted NTDs, including morbidity management and prevention of disabilities dues to PC-NTDs, and thereby contributing to poverty alleviation, productivity and improved quality of life of affected people in the African Region. The ESPEN will have a life span of five years from 2016 to 2020. The first year will be a transition period for the establishment of ESPEN.
