Neglected Tropical Disease (NTDs)

Accurate diagnosis and timely reporting are essential for the effective treatment of Neglected Tropical
Diseases (NTDs). NTDs occurring in the State include dracunculiasis, onchocerciasis and schistosomiasis.
The NTD program actively advocates for the provision of clean water in the communities to prevent
water-borne NTDs in addition to other advocacy and policy ventures.
Management of the disease spans its detection, treatment to limit disability, rehabilitation of affected
persons and support to re-integrate into the society after treatment.
Research is ongoing in collaboration with key stakeholders to better understand the transmission of
NTDs and their control.
