(From the report)

In January 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a plan to control, eliminate, or eradicate 17 NTDs by 2020, and the global NTD community—including pharmaceutical companies, donor and endemic countries, private foundations, civil society organizations, and others— responded, with each committing to do its part to reach those goals for 10 of these diseases. This informal group was called Uniting to Combat NTDs.

The following report, coordinated by the London Declaration Stakeholders Working Group with input from many others, chronicles progress achieved in 2013 on 46 pages. It was published in April 2014 and can be downloaded via the Uniting to Combat NTDs website here:
