2011-02-22 11:57:13

Washington, DC, February 18, 2011 (PAHO) - This fact sheet describes the activities carried out by the PAHO Communicable Disease Project for its neglected disease team to prevent, control and eliminate neglected ('forgotten') diseases primarily affecting the most vulnerable, impoverished, and marginalized populations. Parasitic diseases are a large part in the program's work, but the scope is now broader and follows a more integrated and multi-disease approach to create multisectoral action and cost-effective interventions to combat these poverty-related diseases.
