About this event
Speaker: Samantha Vanderslott, Oxford University
Why do some health topics attract attention, funding, action, and resources, while others do not, and are neglected? How are priorities defined and agendas set in global health? Neglected tropical diseases are exemplary of a health topic that has been singled out as neglected.
A concerted effort has been made to address neglect and realign the priorities and agenda setting in global health that led to this group of diseases to be sidelined. However, the underlying reasoning and structures that led to their neglect is still a feature of global health, and attention must be redirected to prevent further neglect and the neglect of other health issues that are ignored.
