Abstract:

Among the research and funding experts of the global health community, the "Big Three" diseases are AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. As urgent as it is to fight these illnesses, many others also need attention and aren't getting it. These "forgotten diseases" include elephantiasis (or lymphatic filariasis), bilharzia (or schistosomiasis), and river blindness (or onchocerciasis), among others. This program examines the medical science at the core of all three afflictions while also discussing many of the economic and organizational challenges that are hindering action against them. Experts include Professor Alan Fenwick of Imperial College, London; Professor David Molyneux of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine; Dr. Lorenzo Savioli of the WHO; and Dr. Chris Hentschel of the Medicines for Malaria Venture.
