Abstract

The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene is holding a 1-day meeting in London, UK, on Sept 25, 2015, to discuss “The disease elimination agenda: the role of science, policy and advocacy”.1 Important meetings such as this are a welcome forum at which to discuss progress and challenges and to reflect on important milestones, particularly with regard to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Such NTD milestones include the London declaration2 and the WHO roadmap.3 However, the success of these elimination initiatives is contingent on inclusive programming and on addressing the problem in its entirety.
