More than 100 million people in the Americas suffer from neglected infectious diseases, which tend to affect poor populations. Experts from member countries of the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) will review efforts to eliminate 10 such diseases from the Americas and reduce the impact of two others by 2015.

The review will take place in the context of the 16th annual meeting of the WHO Alliance for Global Elimination of Blinding Trachoma by 2020 (GET 2020), which brings together experts on trachoma and other neglected diseases from around the world. Trachoma, which can cause permanent blindness, is a neglected infectious disease that exists in four countries of the Americas. Experts will analyze opportunities and challenges for developing and implementing integrated action plans for trachoma and other neglected infectious diseases in Latin America and the Caribbean.
