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.

Dr. Peter Hotez, along with his co-editor, Dr. Serap Askoy, oversaw this collection, which features several articles written by Dr. Hotez, Dr. Askoy and many other renowned global health experts.

You can read and download the full collection and you can read an exclusive question and answer interview with Drs. Hotez and Askloy on PLoS’ Speaking of Medicine Blog.”
