Neglected tropical diseases are a group of diseases that occur in the tropical and subtropical parts of the world. These neglected tropical diseases include leprosy, chagas diseases, trachoma, dracunculiasis, rabies, buruli ulcer, soil transmitted helminths etc. These illnesses are common among people who have frequent contact with vectors, domestic animals, livestocks and unclean sources of water. They also have a close association with poverty and are associated with filthy conditions. Unfortunately, Sub-Saharan African countries are the poorest, bearing the highest burden of NTDs. This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study to access the level of knowledge and awareness of NTDs among adult residents of Moro LGA, Kwara State. Multistage sampling technique was used to select respondents from the selected communities for this study in Moro LGA.
