Last quote by Dirk Engels

There is no group of diseases that is so intimately linked to poverty. A number of companies have accompanied us in the scaling up by making more medicines available. Is that enough? No, there are still diseases that are neglected and we still have problems with access to basic medicines. Cutaneous leishmaniasis, for instance. It doesn't kill so it attracts less attention, but it is really disfiguring and it causes a lot of stigma and a lot of mental problems. The medicines exist...They are too expensive and (neither) people nor countries have the ability to pay.feedback
