Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) released their fifth progress report on the London Declaration on NTDs. The report describes the progress made toward achieving the goals set out by the London Declaration toward the control, elimination, and eradication of 10 NTDs. DOLF research on a more effective triple drug combination for lymphatic filariasis (LF) was highlighted as an important innovation that “can dramatically improve treatment for LF and decrease the duration of programmes.”   The report also celebrates Merck’s announcement to expand their donation in support of new triple-drug treatment.
