New member for Break Dengue’s Editorial Committee

164870928Great news! Break Dengue Editorial Committee has a new member: Kamran Rafiq, Communications Director and co-founder of the International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases (ISNTD).

Kamran will bring a wealth of knowledge about the ideas, experts and organizations shaping the future of dengue fever.

The ISNTD is an independent and not-for-profit organization dedicated to alleviating the burden of NTDs on the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. Its ultimate goal is reaching sustainable healthcare provision and poverty reduction in the developing world.

The Society believes that this goal cannot be achieved without strengthening the ties between all the parties involved in NTD alleviation and addressing the socio-ecological and socio-political context of NTDs.

It is a perfect fit for what we are trying to do here at Break Dengue. That’s why we signed up to become institutional members of the ISNTD late last year. And Dengue Lab – our knowledge-sharing platform for researchers working on dengue – now has a dedicated ISNTD section and features videos and other content from ISNTD events.

We look forward to continued collaboration with Kamran, the ISNTD and its members as we strive to break dengue together.
