WASH: The silent weapon against NTDs: Working together to achieve prevention, control and elimination.

Abstract

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are a crucial but all too often underplayed part of the prevention and control of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). Diseases including Trachoma, Soil-Transmitted Helminthes (STH) and Schistosomiasis all demand practical WASH interventions so that their prevention, treatment and ultimately their elimination can be achieved by the international community as soon as possible.
