NTD Expertise 2018-2022: Research on neglected tropical diseases

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) affect over one billion people worldwide. Today's 21 diseases are triggered by a wide variety of causes such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi or toxins. 

The new edition of the NTD Expertise 2018-2022 will be published in the German-language version on 19 March 2024 and will be available for digital download on this page. The expertise aims to pool the knowledge of leading researchers in the field of NTD research and to present Germany's contribution to this research. The following questions are presented in the brochure in an understandable way:



- How do experts assess the status quo of the epidemiological situation and the options for combating the diseases?

- What changes have been observed over the last five years in the various disease and funding landscapes?

- What barriers are there for NTDs research in Germany?

The previous version 2013-2017 can be found under the following link:
