Weekly Round-up #152
Welcome to Weekly Round-up #152. Along with our usual updates about jobs, funding, publications and events, this week we're getting involved with World NTD day - and would encourage you all to do so as well.
World NTD Day 2021
On Saturday 30 January 2021, VALIDATE will be supporting the second annual World NTD Day, highlighting the anniversary of the landmark 2012 London Declaration on NTDs and the global need to eradicate NTDs - with leishmaniasis and leprosy being particularly relevant to VALIDATE. To mark this important day, we will be active throughout the week on social media and, on the day itself, we will be doing 24 hours of tweets drawing attention to our members' amazing work in the fight against NTDs. Follow us on Twitter and take part by Tweeting about your work using the hashtag #WorldNTDDay.
