In this HEART Talk Dr. Peter MacPherson provides a brief overview of the challenges and potential solutions regarding tackling communicable diseases in developing countries.
This presentation was delivered as part of a professional development training session for DFID health advisers in March 2018. Subject experts from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) presented the latest evidence on the communicable diseases (HIV, malaria, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases) that affect the poorest people in DFID partner countries.
