Awareness raising about neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) - voice by Bill Gates

I came across this nice little 2-minute video which aims to raise awareness about neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and our duty to do something about them! It also talks about a drive to donate medicines to cure these diseases. the voice in the video is by Bill Gates himself.

I think the video is very well done and worth watching and showing to your kids. However, I would have loved to hear also something about the importance of sanitation to prevent spread of these diseases. (but yes, I know, one cannot put too many messages into a short 2-minute video!)



About the video:

Bill Gates talks about some of the world’s oldest and most horrifying diseases that continue to afflict the world’s poorest people.

Anyway, very good awareness raising efforts!
