NTD treatments are cost-effective, report shows

"Recently, Hudson Institute's Center for Science in Public Policy, in partnership with the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, published a new report to highlight the links between NTDs and socio-economic prosperity," according to the network's "End the Neglect" blog. "The paper found NTD control and elimination efforts to be both inexpensive and highly effective, especially when paired with other major disease treatment efforts, making NTD programs one of the most cost-effective public health interventions available," the blog writes and describes a panel event held Thursday to discuss the findings. The blog notes that an archived webcast of the event is available online (Alabaster, 1/17).
