Neglected Tropical Diseases

Neglected tropical diseases, or NTDs, are common in low-income settings such as in parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Many are preventable and treatable, but are neglected because treatment and preventive measures are not available or affordable. NTDs include Elephantitis, Trachoma, Chagas, Guinea worm and others. LifeStraw® water filters and PermaNet® bed nets help prevent NTDs.

Malaria Research

IR Mapper is a tool that helps inform vector control strategies by mapping insecticide resistance in mosquitoes that transmit malaria, Zika, Dengue and other mosquito borne diseases. This helps inform vector control strategies.
