Visceral Leishmaniasis exists in Southern Europe, India, and Eastern Africa. The video talks about there being nearly 1.5 billion diseases, and talks a lot about the costs of treatment. Truly Great. The WHO lists both paromycin (mentioned in video) and liposomal amphotericin B as essential medicines for the disease.

For even more information, check out One World Health on Youtube or at their website.

This is the first of weekly posts dedicated to making education about NTDs simple and easy!
