[Correspondence] WHO leadership is essential for the elimination of NTDs

The second director of the Department of Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) of WHO retired at the end of September, 2017. He was appointed in 2014 to ensure administrative stability after 9 years of innovative growth of this WHO department, which was established in 2005 after the retirement of the first director.1 Sustaining the momentum for elimination of NTDs requires a timely appointment of a new director to lead an effective Department of NTDs in WHO.
