The London conference on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) held in January was a seminal moment in the global fight against a group of diseases which are often overshadowed in the global health agenda by HIV, malaria and TB.
Research & Development
The open-access journal, PLoS NTDs, celebrated its fifth anniversary. To commemorate this great achievement, the journal compiled editorials and research papers published over the last five years to create a collection, called “The Geopolitics of NTDs.”
The collection focuses on the geographic distribution of NTDs by region to highlight the key differences as well as similarities between the diseases in different areas around the world.
