Raising Funds for Tropical Diseases

Drug companies and governments have gotten together to fast track development of a vaccine for Ebola. As the Ebola virus wreaks havoc in West Africa, what more can be done to tackle a long list of neglected tropical diseases, the so-called diseases of the poor that kill and maim millions in the developing world every year?

Duke University’s David Ridley, health economist and Fuqua School of Business associate professor of the practice, participates in a discussion on BBC World Service radio program In the Balance, hosted by Manuela Saragosa.

Listen to the program.
