The NTD Innovation Prize is designed to encourage and support creativity and ingenuity in neglected tropical diseases and to fund new ideas that could result in cost-effective, scalable and transformative impact. This year American Leprosy Missions is partnering with Novartis to offer two prizes: 1st place for up to $20,000 and 2nd place for up to $15,000.
In honor of the first World NTD Day, abstract submission opened Thursday, January 30, 2020. American Leprosy Missions is interested in ideas that apply a new approach, tool or method to a persistent challenge. Ideas will be considered innovative if they disrupt the status quo, offering a feasible and adoptable solution to a problem in a way that avoids duplication, redundancy or inefficiencies.
