Consultation Meeting on a Trust Fund for the Prevention, Control and Elimination of Neglected and Other Infectious Diseases in Latin America and the Caribbean
(Washington, DC, 15–16 December 2008)

This forum, held at PAHO headquarters and in joint partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) Control, discussed the establishment of a trust fund as an innovative partnership model that would seek to pool public and private resources, as well as individual philanthropists and other benefactors, to support cost-effective neglected infectious disease (NID) prevention, control and elimination efforts, as well as to reduce inequities in health by serving the poorest of the poor in the Region, in full collaboration with the countries, partners and stakeholders.
