Hotez,] who was appointed U.S. science envoy for the Middle East in 2015, brought his knowledge of these neglected tropical diseases to the turmoil in the Middle East and discovered the makings of a new global epidemic. … As part of the larger U.S.-led Global Health Security Agenda, Hotez is using his experiences as a vaccine developer for neglected tropical diseases and as head of the Sabin Vaccine Institute non-profit product development partnership to build and shape regional capacity for making vaccines in the Middle East and North Africa…” (White, 1/9).
