When & Where
The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, an initiative of the Sabin Vaccine Institute, works to raise awareness, political will and funds necessary to control and eliminate the seven most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by 2020. END7 is a fundraising and advocacy campaign that was launched by The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases in January 2012. END7 utilizes advocacy to effect policy change, mobilizes resources to increase NTD elimination efforts, and works to create sustainable global and regional network partnerships that will collaborate to end NTDs.
END7 promotes awareness of NTDs and raises funds through social media campaigns (email, blog, website, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc.) The campaign has shown that it takes only fifty cents to protect and treat one child from the seven target NTDs per year. We are fundraising towards the goal of eliminating the seven most common NTDs by 2020.
