Welcome to the open-access "Global Neglected Tropical Disease" (GNTD) platform, providing compiled historical and contemporary survey data on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), and first model-based disease risk estimates.
The GNTD database was initiated by the EU-funded CONTRAST project aiming to optimize schistosomiasis control in Africa. Currently, the GNTD database is being expanded to include other NTDs, namely soil-transmitted helminthiasis (infections with Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and hookworm), lymphatic filariasis, Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, Buruli ulcer and leprosy. At present, more than 1X'000 unique survey locations (mainly on Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium in Africa) are included in the GNTD database.
The database is populated with survey data obtained from peer-reviewed publications and ‘grey literature’, using a standardized approach, and directly from contributors. All GNTD database entries can be requested, using the request form on this website and will be sent to you in via email in Excel or .csv format.
Our team currently consists of several core members and supporting staff members from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH), Switzerland.
Our excellence in research always wants to be a benefit to human kind in the end, this is our main goal at Swiss TPH: Any research at our institute has this in mind.
We encourage everybody in possession of relevant NTD survey data to contribute to the GNTD database, to make it richer, which will foster new epidemiological research.
