Ascend West and Central Africa COVID-19 and NTDs

Abstract
This opinion piece follows this publication by the Ascend West and Central Africa project on the potential impact of COVID-19 on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) activities. It is authored by Professor David Molyneux, CMG, Emeritus Professor, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Chair of the Ascend West and Central Africa Technical Consultative Committee (TCC) and edited by Simon Bush, Director of NTDs, Sightsavers. It covers the countries included in the Ascend West and Central Africa programme but we hope is relevant to all NTD programmes. The original publication, set to challenge the NTD community and to receive feedback on the initial ideas, promoted great discussion. The content of this opinion piece has taken on that initial feedback and posed new challenges.
