Co-sponsor H.R.1415 to help end the tropical disease threat

NTDs are a group of 17 parasitic and bacterial diseases which blind, disable, disfigure, and sometimes kill victims from among the more than one billion of the world’s poorest people, trapping the most marginalized communities in a cycle of poverty. These
diseases can keep children from attending school and their parents from working and cause excessive bleeding by mothers during birth and result in low birth weight babies. NTDs therefore constitute a significant hurdle to achieving economic growth and dilute
the impact of foreign assistance programs. While NTDs primarily afflict communities in developing countries, outbreaks have been reported in the U.S. and other developed countries in recent years, such as West Nile virus, dengue fever, chikungunya and now
Zika.
