MSF Videos: Neglected Tropical Diseases

MSF recently released this set of videos on NTDs (neglected tropical diseases). On a related note, I am looking for someone to take over this duty for the blog (finding interesting/relevant YouTube videos and posting them here with some brief commentary), so if you are interested, please e-mail me!

Sleeping sickness is a fatal and much neglected disease that plagues parts of Africa.

Chagas is a parasitic disease found on the American continent, where it affects an estimated 8 to 10 million people and claims up to 12,500 lives every year.

Kala Azar is a neglected tropical disease responsible for 50,000 deaths every year.
