We are happy to hear of the launch of the "100% Committed" movement, to secure political and financial commitments in support of the "Kigali Declaration" on NTDs. Some NTDs like Dengue, chagas disease, river blindness, leishmaniasis, elephantiasis, are transmitted by insects which can be controlled by targeting the vectors with mosquito nets, insecticides for house spraying etc. Innovative vector control products would contribute substantially to achieving the objectives of this declaration. #endNTDs Photo credit:
