The Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases (COR-NTD) convenes coalition members annually to facilitate conversations between researchers, the World Health Organization, country program managers, implementers and donors. Working groups comprised of NTD experts from across the coalition lead conversations and identify key research priorities at COR-NTD meetings called Research Links throughout the year. These conversations, which culminate at the Annual Meeting, play an important role in establishing the NTD research agenda.
