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.

10th International Rotavirus Symposium Kicks Off in Bangkok
BANGKOK, Thailand – September 21, 2012 – This week, more than 350 leading scientific, public and private sector experts convened to discuss progress and next steps in reducing the global incidence of rotavirus, the most common cause of diarrheal hospitalizations and deaths among children worldwide. Rotavirus takes the lives of approximately 188,000 Asian children under five each year.
Through trainings and workshops, Sabin educates leaders from national governments, the private sector, media and civil society organizations on the value of immunization and encourages collaboration among all development partners on vaccine issues. Each year, in addition to the symposia series that Sabin coordinates on diseases such as pneumococcal disease and rotavirus, Sabin organizes conferences and peer exchanges on immunization that bring together key stakeholders in order to improve global awareness, access, policy and action.
