Part of the ‘neglect’ of the Neglected Tropical diseases (NTDSs) leishmaniasis and Chagas disease arises from a lack of awareness, both from those at risk of infection and amongst the academic community. In response to this unmet need, our first video is now live on YouTube. ‘Cutaneous leishmaniasis: An introduction” is a short film, based on the experience of a family in an endemic area. This first animation is supported by the Durham Matariki Global Health theme. Please watch below, share on social media and subscribe to our channel!
