The rise of neglected tropical diseases in the "new Texas"

Peter J. Hotez, M.D., Ph.D.

The rise of neglected tropical diseases in the "new Texas".

Disease and poverty fellow Peter J. Hotez examines the rise of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in Texas, arguing that the spread of diseases like chikungunya West Nile, Zika and Ebola has not occurred by accident but instead reflects rapidly evolving changes and shifts in a “new” Texas beset by modern and globalizing forces.
