Deputy Secretary-General's video message to World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day 2022

Dear colleagues, friends,
COVID-19 is setting back efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Extreme poverty is rising for the first time in a generation.
The pandemic has also demonstrated the fragility of progress and has highlighted the glaring inequities that exist in our world.
As we work to tackle this public health emergency, we must address longstanding and systemic inequalities and inequities.
Neglected tropical diseases embody these imbalances.
