NTD Awareness During The 2012 Elections

Peter Hotez of the National School of Tropical Medicine and Karen Goraleski of the Sabin Vaccine Institute write in this PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) editorial, “In the next year leading up to the U.S. presidential and congressional elections, the global NTD community has an important opportunity to present the case for NTD funding to remain as an essential component of U.S. international development assistance.” They conclude, “Gaps in funding still exist, and engaging both Congressional Democrats and Republicans on NTDs must remain a top priority for each of us in the science community” (11/29).
