The fund sits within the three-year Ascend West and Central Africa programme, which is an integrated programme aiming to make major progress towards eliminating these painful and poverty-trapping NTDs. The programme will deliver more than 400 million treatments, helping several countries to make significant progress, in line with the WHO 2030 NTD Roadmap.
The fund seeks to enhance the quality of effective NTD programming by validating innovative ideas and assisting the transition of programme learning into scalable and sustainable outcomes.
The fund offers the opportunity to be creative and do things differently – to explore innovations, respond to emerging gaps, solve identified needs, and transition operational findings into scalable programming.
