She discusses the importance of advocacy and education, communication, community ownership, and program sustainability, according to the blog. “There are many challenges but the end is possible and closer than ever before. My own experiences working with rural communities led me to believe that eliminating NTDs is possible,” she said, the blog notes (8/21).
