Abstract
: Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of chronic parasitic diseases and related conditions
that are the most common diseases among the 2·7 billion people globally living on less than US$2 per day. In
response to the growing challenge of NTDs, Ethiopia is preparing to launch a NTD Master Plan. The purpose of this
review is to underscore the burden of NTDs in Ethiopia, highlight the state of current interventions, and suggest
ways forward.
