Our History

Communities of research experts, policy makers and implementers in the regions most affected by NTDs could complement current global efforts against NTDs, particularly in Africa. Therefore, to address the NTD burden from within, the idea of an African Research Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases (ARNTD) was initiated by research fellows who had been supported by the European Foundations Initiative for NTDs (EFINTD).

Celebrating Five Years of the African Researcher’s Small Grants Program

In the five years of its inception, the SGP has received about 1446 applications with 66 scientists awarded through the five cohorts. With close to  $1.5 million in research funds disbursed, many young African scientists are contributing to research that removes barriers to elimination in their home countries. Through this partnership the SGP initiative is influencing NTD research policy directions to meet the targeted goals in the 2030 WHO NTD Roadmap.
