Americas' neglected diseases "need multisector approach":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF) is calling for more "multisector partnerships" in support of efforts to tackle neglected diseases in the Americas. The issue was the central theme of a conference co-hosted by PAHEF and Harvard University's Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation (Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 31-April 3). "Progress is being made" thanks to partnerships with the private sector, but far more needs to be done, especially in the poorest countries, said PAHEF executive director Edward Kadunc at the bi-annual "Frontiers of Innovation" event. Cambridge, Massachusetts-based PAHEF cites projects in Belize, Brazil and Mexico as examples of particular successes to date. Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox was among the attendees.
