Coordinated Efforts, Political Will Help MSF Successfully Treat More Than 13K For Kala-Azar In India’s Bihar State

“After treating more than 13,000 people afflicted with kala-azar, Médecins Sans Frontières looks toward closing shop by the end of August and passing the ropes to the government of Bihar, India’s poorest state. … [W]hile India has 50 percent of the world’s cases of kala-azar, 70 percent of those are in Bihar alone…” (Cousins, 5/15).
