UAE mobile network changes name: Here's why

Thank you for reading the news about UAE mobile network changes name: Here's why and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - UAE network provider Etisalat on Thursday changed its network name to 'NTD DAY ETISALAT'.

The move is to celebrate first annual World NTD Day, an awareness day for addressing neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

More than 250 global civil society advocates, community leaders, health experts and policymakers will unite today in Abu Dhab to kick off a decisive year in the fight against neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) for the World NTD Day.

NTDs are a diverse group of communicable diseases that prevail in tropical and subtropical conditions in 149 countries, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

These affect more than 1.5 billion of the world's most impoverished people and cost developing economies billions of dollars every year.

Despite their prevalence, NTDs have not always been at the top of public health priorities.

World NTD Day will broaden the conversation beyond the traditional global health community, engaging the general public in the effort to ensure people at risk for NTDs no longer remain "neglected".
