RTI International is proud to be a global leader in NTD control and elimination. Since 2006, RTI has headed the implementation of USAID's flagship NTD projects, working in close partnership with WHO and ministries of health in over 20 countries. RTI has supported the integration and scale up of national programs to control and eliminate seven of the most common NTDs - in part by increasing the reach of mass treatment campaigns to all people at risk. Our NTD programming also focuses on alleviating suffering and disability caused by NTDs, building the capacity of national NTD programs, and strengthening health systems and processes for NTD innovation and learning.
RTI contributes to global fora where technical aspects of NTD programming are considered, linking programming to research needs. RTI experts are also core members of NTD consultative committees, advising on key issues relevant to the global NTD agenda as well as supporting the development of major program strategies, guidelines and policies.
