Relieving 500 million people from forgotten diseases

How scientists, donors and international drug companies are tackling parasitic diseases affecting much of the world's population

Professor Alan Fenwick OBE, Chair of Tropical Parasitology at Imperial College, is working with the Bill and Melinda Gates' Foundation, which has invested in several international groups to facilitate and evaluate treatment for parasitic diseases such as bilharzia, elephantiasis, worms and river blindness. These diseases affect the poor, those that do not have the economic strength or importance to be of interest to most politicians and businesses. The work of Professor Fenwick and the Gates' Foundation, donors and scientists will provide an affordable, effective, pro-poor, community based, sustainable solution to these disabling parasitic diseases in the developing world.
