Travel Awards

Thanks to the generosity of Sightsavers, the Executive Committee of the NNN is pleased to offer Travel Awards to employees of NGOs or Government / Public Servants / Persons affected by NTDs working to control or eliminate NTDs. Awardees must be a citizen of and working in an NTD-endemic country. The travel award will cover a portion of travel expenses incurred to attend the NNN Conference 2018.

The Travel Award Committee will allocate 30 return flights, subject to flight availability and only from destinations that are served by the airline designated by Sightsavers.  The designated airline will route through UAE, so only reasonable travel itineraries will be considered.
