BMC 11/06/15 Challenges and opportunities associated with neglected tropical disease and water, sanitation and hygiene intersectoral integration programs. All 24 interviews explored possible barriers or challenges to intersectoral collaboration of NTD and WASH programs.
Participants also identified and discussed several needs or ideal conditions for future integration efforts. Both the barriers and the ideal conditions discussed in this section were the most commonly stated themes among interview participants, regardless of sector of work or type of organization. The principal barriers and ideal conditions are characterized below. Barriers The interview participants revealed several important insights regarding the barriers that their organizations face when trying to implement NTD and WASH integration programs. Table 5. Differing programmatic objectives Differing programmatic objectives was the barrier most commonly mentioned by interview participants.
Participant 23: That is a challenge, the WASH organizations have their own objectives, they have their own donor goals. Indicators and metrics Over-emphasis on mass drug administration Funding. LIVERPOOL SCHOOL OF TROPICAL MEDICINE 01/06/15 The best buy in global public health One of the world's top experts on tropical disease explains why action on poverty-related illnesses is a must – and simpler than we might think. David Molyneux is Director of the Lymphatic Filariasis Support Centre at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine since 2000.
He is also Executive Secretary of the Executive Group of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis. Professor Molyneux was Director of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine from 1991 to 2000, and is currently Professor of Tropical Health Sciences at the University of Liverpool. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002248-15 Neglected tropical diseases. PLOS 16/04/15 Neglected Tropical Diseases among the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Overview and Update. Abstract The ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) constitute an economic powerhouse, yet these countries also harbor a mostly hidden burden of poverty and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
Almost 200 million people live in extreme poverty in ASEAN countries, mostly in the low or lower middle-income countries of Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Viet Nam, and Cambodia, and many of them are affected by at least one NTD. However, NTDs are prevalent even among upper middle-income ASEAN countries such as Malaysia and Thailand, especially among the indigenous populations. The three major intestinal helminth infections are the most common NTDs; each helminthiasis is associated with approximately 100 million infections in the region. In addition, more than 10 million people suffer from either liver or intestinal fluke infections, as well as schistosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis (LF). Editor: Darren J.

Mathew Baylis gives his definition at the annual ISNTD Bites meeting held in London this month. “I see it as meaning a disease that is understudied relative to its impact”. Many of these diseases are vector transmitted or are zoonoses (diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans) and emergent frontiers of some of them were explored during the meeting; chaired by International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases Director, Marianne Comparet.
The first session opened with an account by David Molyneux of the final challenges facing the Guinea Worm Eradication programme. The selection pressures imposed on a parasite by mass drug administration and environmental changes may also be responsible for the appearance of novel hybrid schistosomes in hot spots for schistosomiasis. The theme of zoonoses was continued across several of the presentations. DEFRA 11/03/15 United Kingdom contingency plan for exotic notifiable diseases of animals (màj) The plan outlines the way the 4 administrations of the UK work together to provide a rapid and effective response to exotic notifiable animal diseases.
The plan describes the roles, responsibilities, structures and communications that will be used to co-ordinate the disease outbreak response. The UK plan complements and should be read in conjunction with the individual plans that are produced by each administration in the UK.

Neglected Tropical Diseases of the Middle East and North Africa: Review of Their. Public Library of Science Abstract The neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are highly endemic but patchily distributed among the 20 countries and almost 400 million people of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and disproportionately affect an estimated 65 million people living on less than US$2 per day.
Egypt has the largest number of people living in poverty of any MENA nation, while Yemen has the highest prevalence of people living in poverty. These two nations stand out for having suffered the highest rates of many NTDs, including the soil-transmitted nematode infections, filarial infections, schistosomiasis, fascioliasis, leprosy, and trachoma, although they should be recognized for recent measures aimed at NTD control.

Abstract Background Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) activity has recently been detected in the Kordufan region of Sudan.
Since 2008, several sporadic cases and nosocomial outbreaks associated with high case-fatality have been reported in villages and rural hospitals in the region. Principal Findings In the present study, we describe a cluster of cases occurring in June 2009 in Dunkop village, Abyei District, South Kordufan, Sudan. Conclusions The present investigation illustrates that multiple CCHF virus lineages are circulating in the Kordufan region of Sudan and are associated with recent outbreaks of the disease occurring during 2008–2009. Author Summary The tick-borne virus which causes the disease Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is known to be widely distributed throughout much of Africa, Southern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Southern Russia.

Results Of the former OIE List A diseases, CSF, FMD, SVD, HPAI (“fowl plague” until 1981 ) and NDV (“fowl pest” until 1962) have all occurred in GB between 1938 and 2007. The remaining OIE List A diseases did not occur: African horse sickness, African swine fever, bluetongue (introduced in 2008), contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, goat and sheep pox, lumpy skin disease, peste des petits ruminants, Rift Valley fever, rinderpest and vesicular stomatitis. Livestock demographics in Great Britain 1938–2007 The total number of cattle, sheep and pigs farmed in GB almost doubled from 32.7 million in the 1940s to 58.2 million in the 1990s, but then declined following the FMD outbreak in 2001 to 46.5 million (Figure 1, left panels; see Table S1 for all 70-year results).
The number of poultry more than doubled from 61.1 million in 1948 to 150.4 million in 2007 (Figure 1, left panels; Table S1). Figure 1. Doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0022066.g001.
