Vector-Borne Neglected and Tropical Diseases

What options are there to fight VBNTDs?

Some of the infections caused by NTDs can be controlled or even eliminated through interventions like mass drug administration (MDA) of safe and effective medicines, improving basic water, sanitation, and hygiene as well as controlling the vectors.

As some neglected tropical diseases share common vectors like mosquitos and different species of flies, both medicinal and vector control efforts may be combined to be even more effective against a bigger number of diseases.
