For 50 years, we have treated Chagas disease with a 2-month course of benznidazole. Researchers now find that 2 works as well - while much better tolerated by patients. Important medical innovation is not just what can be patented ⁦@DNDi

Quoted @DNDi

"What kind of girl is this? She is good for nothing." When #kalaazar survivor Ruby showed symptoms of disfiguring #PDKL, her mother-in-law and husband rejected her. A report on women in Bihar with #leishmaniasis facing stigma and financial difficulty. https://bit.ly/2VOVghV 

What happens when a disfiguring disease strikes poor, lowly educated women who also have to battle the challenges of migration? The psychological trauma is just as acute as the medical. My piece in @Indiatogether Thanks to @DNDi for facilitating this story of vulnerability
