Fighting Neglect
MSFhas taken a stand for the millions of people affected by visceral leishmaniasis, sleeping sickness and Chagas. These diseases are neglected by drug developers, policy makers, and media, making it difficult to get patients the treatment they need. Treatment is possible with the existing medical tools and drugs, but additional research and development toward new and more effective diagnostics and treatments are desperately needed to address the overwhelming neglect of people whose needs are not met by pharmaceutical companies.
