InfoNTD is an online platform that shares information, publications and tools on cross-cutting issues in neglected tropical diseases. It is essential for health professionals and researchers in the NTD field to cooperate and share knowledge. However, information about cross-cutting issues in NTDs used to be dispersed across many (online) channels. The urgent need for an up-to-date and centralized information platform led to the set-up of InfoNTD, initiated by NLR and American Leprosy Missions.
InfoNTD is managed by NLR and housed in the NLR International Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
To enable capacity strengthening for researchers, programme managers, M&E officers, policy makers, health professionals and others working in the field of NTDs by making knowledge, information and tools easily accessible.
We offer a sharing platform

Some articles contain stigmatising wording. Please note that InfoNTD disapproves any stigmatising language. However, we aim to enable access to all relevant publications and want to emphasize that we are not responsible for the content of these publications. We inform journals when we notice stigmatising language in one of their articles and propose alternative wording.
