Some diseases, like COVID-19, receive massive attention from media, research institutes and policy-makers, while other diseases remain neglected for centuries. One of these is noma and we believe it’s possible to tackle it by getting it added to the World Health Organization Neglected Tropical Diseases list by 2023.
