Remembering Dr Mwelecele Ntuli Malecela

We were shocked and greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Dr Mwelecele Ntuli Malecela – an irreplaceable warrior in the fight against neglected tropical diseases. Her drive and passion were fundamental to the success of the 2030 WHO NTD roadmap, and her approach embodied equity and inclusion.

We will be ever grateful for her insightful contributions to our FIND NTD strategy and her generous support for our work. Our sincerest condolences go to her family, friends, colleagues, and all whose lives she touched in the NTD community.
