Neglected tropical diseases: women and girls in focus.

Abstract

This report highlights findings from a literature review and an interactive meeting that set out to assess knowledge about the impact that NTDs and mass drug administration (MDA) programs have on women and girls and identify opportunities to improve access and strengthen the value and positive impacts of MDA for women and girls. It builds on recent commitments by key donors and stakeholders in the Joint Announcement on Implementation of Agenda 2030 Accelerating Progress Towards Gender Equality to increase focus and investments towards closing the core gender data challenges.
