Pathways to Sustainable NTD Elimination

The Pathways initiative empowers and equips stakeholders with the tools and strategies needed to sustain the progress made in the elimination and prevention of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), with a specific focus on Onchocerciasis (Oncho) and Lymphatic Filariasis (LF). By investing in the capabilities of national program managers, this initiative enhances advocacy efforts, bolsters the effectiveness of NTD programs, and positively impacts broader communities. Our work supports the critical voices of those at the forefront of NTD management, pushing us closer to a world free from the burden of NTDs.

Effective advocacy

This specialized online guide was developed to empower national program managers and stakeholders and enable effective advocacy across the complex landscape of NTDs. It draws upon the profound insights and experiences of individuals deeply engaged in the fight against Oncho and LF, providing a foundation for impactful advocacy in diverse contexts.


This guide fosters the capacity of program managers and stakeholders to advocate for the rights and care of those affected by NTDs and for the sustainability of elimination efforts, leading to improved overall well-being. Our mission is to equip stakeholders with the knowledge and tools necessary to advocate for the resources needed to ensure that the achievements in NTD elimination are not only preserved but built upon.
