The END Fund represents a consortium of private sector donors committed to combating neglected tropical diseases in Africa. The END Fund’s vision is that the private sector has a unique and important opportunity to participate in this inspiring movement to impact and improve the lives of hundreds of millions of Africans at risk of NTDs. A key component of The END Fund’s work is strategic partnerships with the Ministries of Health and Education, local NGOs and organizations providing technical assistance, capacity building and monitoring and evaluation support. The END Fund has a track record of funding national NTD programs in Rwanda and Burundi and has been proud to be a part of the significant reduction of NTD prevalence in these countries. From 2007-2011, The END Fund supported the delivery of treatments to close to 10 million people. The END Fund is in the process of expanding support to Namibia, Angola, Kenya, Liberia and the Central African Republic. The Fund will continue its engagement beyond these countries as additional funding is secured and where critical programming gaps are identified where private sector funding can be deployed for high-impact, low-cost, sustainable NTD programs that are in alignment with national NTD strategies.
