Survey for WHO 2030 Targets
During 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) will discuss and adopt global indicators and targets for 2030 for all neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The WHO Global Leprosy Programme has asked the Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy for its input. This is the first time that the leprosy community as a whole has been asked to engage in the process, so we hope you will take the time to provide your guidance by answering the survey.
This survey seeks your feedback on potential global targets, which have been grouped under the Triple Zero format, in line with the WHO leprosy strategy. Please note that these are global targets: countries that already have lower leprosy endemicity are expected to adopt stronger targets, and those with higher endemicity are expected to consider national targets that contribute to the global targets.
The results of this survey will be collated and sent to WHO and Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy members later in February. WHO’s Global Leprosy Programme will use the feedback from this survey to inform its discussions and decisions about leprosy targets.
All responses are strictly confidential. No individual responses will be shared, so please give your full and honest feedback. Survey responses are due by Monday, 11 February.
We appreciate the hard work of the ILEP Technical Committee, Geoff Warne, Monty Mokhayer, the WHO Global Leprosy Programme and Dr. Cairns Smith who have helped make the survey possible.
