Our Work

The Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases (CNTD) is part of a group of multidisciplinary initiatives focused on neglected tropical diseases (NTD) based at LSTM. 

The unit supports NTD activities in 12 countries. It provides technical assistance to identify and prioritise interventions that will eliminate lymphatic filariasis (LF) and reduce the burden of LF and other neglected tropical diseases.

The primary role of the unit is supporting colleagues in endemic countries with their progress towards successful elimination of filarial diseases.
