Join CDC and ASTMH for a Live Twitterview on Neglected Parasitic Infections in the U.S.!
Friday, May 16, 2014, 2:00-3:00 PM ET
CDC has targeted five neglected parasitic infections (NPIs) as priorities for public health action, based on the numbers of people infected, the severity of the illnesses, or our ability to prevent and treat them. These include Chagas disease, neurocysticercosis, toxocariasis, toxoplasmosis, and trichomoniasis.
