Weve been getting a lot of interesting analysis and attention on Dr. Hotezs New York Times editorial, along with his newly published NTD debate paper in PLoS Medicine that have both been released this past week. So on todays reading list, weve provided you with a sample of what people are saying about the pieces and the engaging discussions that they have sparked. Weve also included materials in other NTD and global health news, particularly about the decrease in deaths of children under five years old, and the importance of water sanitation. Enjoy!

Millions could be spared with funding increase, VOA News Researchers Call for Social Offset to Tackle NTDs, Science Daily Neglected diseases: Teach or treat?, Megan Scudellari, The Scientist WHO says under-5 deaths drastically reduced, Afrique en ligne Nigeria: When Water Becomes a Curse, World News South Africa: Benefits of Working Together on Water, Terna Gyuse, All Africa
