Global urbanization and the neglected tropical diseases

Peter J. Hotez discusses how - while urbanization can have positive effects - the negative effects can be far more serious and debilitating. For example, rapid urbanization can fail to sustain healthy populations when it outstrips clean water reserve and sewage management systems, or when urban poverty produces unhealthy diets and diminished physical activity, low-quality housing, and environmental degradation. Such factors further contribute to the spread of neglected tropical diseases.
