In January 2012, key actors in global health met in London to commit to increasing support for the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). As a result, the ‘The London Declaration’ made specific commitments to: increase the number of drug donations available to countries, increase bilateral funding, support non-governmental development organisations (NGDOs) and philanthropic financial commitment to NTD intervention and research. There is no doubt that while progress has been made, several issues have emerged that have the potential to delay that progress.
