Fighting Neglect

"Fighting Neglect" charts MSF's 25 years of experience in diagnosing and treating Chagas disease, sleeping sickness, and kala azar, in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and the Caucasus.
It examines past, present, and future management of the diseases and shows that treatment is possible even with existing diagnostic tools and medicines. However, additional research and development toward new and more effective diagnostics and treatments are desperately needed to address the overwhelming neglect of people whose needs fail to be met by pharmaceutical companies. It will take increased political will among international donors and national governments where these diseases are endemic to improve access to quality life-saving treatment.
