Dr. Peter Hotez's recent analysis reveals substantial global health gains for AIDS, malaria and neglected tropical diseases.

"A new analysis reveals substantial global health gains for AIDS, malaria and neglected tropical diseases. Beginning in 2016, the incoming presidential administration can assert American leadership to help control and eliminate poverty-related diseases — including those with pandemic potential — while being mindful of fiscal constraints, said a tropical-disease expert at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.

Dr. Peter Hotez, the fellow in disease and poverty at the Baker Institute, outlined his insights in a new policy paper, “Blue Marble Health: A New Presidential Road Map for Global Poverty-Related Diseases.” He is available for media interviews on the topic.
