Introduction

Dear Colleague,

Greetings! We are gathering inputs from NTD stakeholders to design a session at the upcoming 2019 NNN conference on the “drivers of successful partnerships to achieve the 2030 NTD goals”. This session will bring together representatives from NTD-specific coalitions, advocacy initiatives and experts in partnership development to discuss common challenges, successes and best practices in fostering a collaborative approach to disease control and elimination.

In this survey, we draw a distinction between disease-specific coalitions and national coalitions to influence NTD policy. Disease-specific coalitions might be coalitions of organizations who come together to advance the goals of specific disease control and elimination initiatives, such as the coalition to eliminate trachoma, leprosy, STH, or Schistosomiasis.

National coalitions are networks of organizations including health ministries in some national platforms, working together to advance disease elimination objectives at a country level through building political will and influence national-level policies. These coalitions may focus on a single disease or multiple diseases.

The questions we have for you should take no more than 15 minutes of your time, and we thank you in advance for your insights!

 
Aparna Barua Adams, International Coalition for Trachoma Control (ICTC)
Jessica Cook, Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy (GPZL)
Anouk Gouvras, Global Schistosomiasis Alliance (GSA)
