Malawi NTD Master Plan Development 2022-2026
In order to realise the goals outlined in the 2021-2030 WHO NTD Global Road Map, countries are encouraged to develop comprehensive multi-year ‘Master Plans’ for the control of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) which will serve as an essential component for effective planning and implementation of sustainable NTD programmes. Each national NTD Master Plan is intended to provide programme goals, objectives and a 3–5-year strategy based on extensive situation analysis, and to address all components of the NTD programmes relevant to the country.
What GLIDE is doing
To support this process, GLIDE is collaborating with the Malawi Ministry of Health and key NTD stakeholders in Malawi to support the development a Malawi NTD Master Plan that will guide national activities from 2022-2026. Looking ahead, GLIDE is committed to continue our support to Malawi’s NTD elimination efforts by working with partners to develop effective advocacy strategies and enhance the existing evidence base for investments in disease elimination.
