Niamey August 13, 2014 - The United States Government, acting through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), announced that its program to fight against neglected tropical diseases has reached a cumulative total of one billion treatments against these diseases worldwide. This program has reached some of the most vulnerable populations in the world, including four hundred sixty-five million people in 25 countries.

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are a heterogeneous group of diseases that affect more than one billion people – one-sixth of the world’s population – including about 800 million children. These diseases can kill and frequently impair, blind or disfigure their victims, thus resulting in disastrous economic consequences for communities due to lost productivity and income. In Niger, neglected tropical diseases exist in all health districts of the country.
