Indicator 3.3.5: Number of people requiring interventions against neglected tropical diseases

Please note - The majority of cases of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD’s) in the UK are imported cases from outside of the UK, and caution needs to be applied when interpreting the data. There are a number of factors that play a role in influencing infection, and treatment usually occurs in the UK and not the country of origin. More information on neglected tropical diseases in the UK can be seen in the following guidance pages - Dengue fever, Chikungunya, Rabies.

Other information

Data provided by the Rare and Imported Pathogens Laboratory, PHE Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Reponse, Porton Down. Note that the totals in the table are higher than the total number of cases stated in the report as some cases travelled to more than one country. All possible travel destinations are included for analysis if no dates of travel or onset have been stated; in reality a case is likely to have acquired his/her infection in only one country.
