Spotlight on Noma

Following the historic official classification of the disease noma as a Neglected Tropical Disease in 2023, this "Spotlight on Noma" delves deeper into the existing knowledge about noma; what the international community can do to accelerate efforts to combat this disease; and the crucial role which survivors and affected communities will play in the advocacy, research and programmes to tackle noma.

Valérie Elsig (Fondation Sentinelles)

Heron Gezahegn Gebretsadik (Associate Professor, EUCLID University)
