Global Dispatches Podcast Discusses Debate Over Deworming Interventions

Global Dispatches Podcast: The Worm Wars!
Global Dispatches host Mark Goldberg speaks to Humanosphere reporter and co-founder of DAWNS Digest Tom Murphy about “‘Worm Wars,’ [which] is shorthand for an ongoing scientific debate about the efficacy of deworming programs; that is, programs supported by governments and non-profits to stop the transmission of parasitic worms. … This largely academic debate offers key insights into the role of research in influencing international development and global health agendas” (8/19).
