Scorecards and neglected tropical diseases
National NTD scorecards are country-owned tools which use existing data to track the performance of priority indicators, selected based on country NTD strategic plans, disease burden and availability of reliable data sources providing routinely updated data.
Scorecards are updated quarterly or biannually, integrated into country review and accountability mechanisms and discussed by key stakeholders led by NTD programmes.
