The activities of the doctoral program in "Neglected and Poverty-related Parasitic Diseases in a One Health perspective" (NePParD) address a current global health theme, involving human and animal health, shared across various scientific areas (Biological, Chemical, Medical, and Veterinary Sciences). They aim to contribute to the objectives of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), particularly in the environmental transition, as well as to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Health and Well-Being), and the World Health Organization's Roadmap "Ending NTDs 2021-2030" for the control and elimination of neglected and poverty-related parasitic diseases (NPRPD). These issues also place the doctoral program within the scope of development cooperation activities and science diplomacy.
The Research Doctorate Program in Neglected and Poverty-related Parasitic Diseases in a "One Health perspective" (NePParD) aims to stimulate third-level research and training activities, primarily in the field of human and animal parasitic diseases, to train researchers capable of transferring new knowledge and technologies for the benefit of global health. The doctoral program aligns with the priorities of the National Research Plan (PNR) and at least four of the six missions of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR). Specifically, it aligns with Mission M4: Education and Research, including synergistic collaboration with industry (M4C2), Mission M6: Health, Mission M2: Green Revolution and Ecological Transition as territory protection encompassing the monitoring and control of parasitic vectors (M2C4), and Mission M1: Digitalization, Innovation, and Competitiveness.
