Wellcome Trust Examines NTD Research, Awareness Efforts

The Wellcome Trust reports on neglected tropical disease (NTD) research and awareness efforts in this feature story, writing, “In the past five years or so, wider attention has begun to fall on these other diseases, thanks largely to a campaign led predominantly by scientists and centered on a new name: ‘neglected tropical diseases,’ or NTDs.” The article includes quotes from “some of the scientists who coined the new phrase to raise awareness of the continuing burden of these diseases, and … Trust-funded researchers whose work is helping to develop better solutions for tackling them” (Regnier, 1/6).
