The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to enter into a contractual agreement with a successful bidder to carry out an evaluation of the Neglected Tropical Diseases Programme with a special focus on the current neglected tropical diseases roadmap for implementation.

Neglected tropical diseases cause immense human suffering and death.  They pose a devastating obstacle to health for millions of people and remain a serious impediment to poverty reduction and socioeconomic development.  Through a coordinated and integrated approach adopted since 2007, control, elimination and even eradication of these diseases has been shown to be feasible.  Efforts to combat NTDs crystalized in the 2011 roadmap for implementation (2012-2020) and in resolution WHA 66.12 adopted by the Sixty-sixth World Health Assembly in May 2013.


Framed as a formative evaluation, this exercise will serve as an important tool to reflect on lessons learned and inform the operationalization of the strategy of WHO and its partners in the global combat against neglected tropical diseases.  The evaluation will document successes, challenges and gaps, present lessons learned and provide recommendations for the final years of the roadmap implementation phase until 2020, as well as useful input for the elaboration of the next strategic instrument aimed at addressing the remaining toll of NTDs.
