The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases’ “End the Neglect” blog examines the global effort to raise awareness about Chagas disease, or American trypanosomiasis, which “is one of the 17 neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) recognized by the [WHO].” The blog states, “Increased political attention is needed, particularly in Mexico and the United States, to put an end to this NTD,” and highlights the work of the Sabin Vaccine Institute and other partners to combat and draw attention to the disease (Corona-Parra, 11/13).
