Video: Scourge of NTDs: Neglected Tropical Diseases are now fully targetted by business and World Health Organization

There's another blog, Christian Medical Observations and Ruminations, that a friend edits.  They've taken on learning about the billion-victim Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and are joining as a supporting organization the World Health Org's campaign against 17 NTDs, supported by major pharmaceutical companies, Business and Human Rights, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and thousands ordinary folks like us.  God bless 'em, YouTube now has a set of videos on the NTDs, gruesome as they are, they're must viewing!  This subject matter shoud be tawt in schools — not just public schools, but Christian and Jewish and Muslim schools too.  A hi proportion of the world's doctor's and nurse's (compared to the relative sizes of such schools to the given student population in, say, North America) seem to come from these sources — and it's obvious the world — our world — God's world — is going to need young new medicos with the mettle to rise to the needs of the more than a billion sufferers of this select menu of illnesses.  This video is from Kenya.
