ready Neglected Tropical Disease Ontology

Abbreviation: NTDO

General Information
The Neglected Tropical Disease Ontology (NTDO) models Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD), a specific set of diseases which persist among marginalized populations of the developing world. The NTDO focuses on vector-borne disease control as the transmission path, as this drives prevention strategies and decision support. NTDO includes information about the disease, its causative agents (when available), dispositions, and the geographic location the disease happens.
