​​​Why Europe's response to Ebola shouldn't surprise us

Given Europe’s lack of engagement with neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), recent criticism of its response to Ebola is perhaps not that surprising.  

In their recent blog, Professor Sir Roy Anderson and Sunit Bagree argue that NTDs are a global problem that require a global solution. The European Commission who are on the margins of the movements in combatting NTDs, should take action particularly in preventing STH and schistosomiasis - two easily treatable NTDs which cause pain, stunted growth, anaemia and lower cognitive skills in over 400 million children worldwide. ​​
