Have you ever heard of this
neglected condition?
Kala azar or visceral leishmaniasis is a neglected tropical disease and the second largest parasitic killer in the world. India accounts for over 30% of the total kala azar cases in the world. 80% of these cases occur in Bihar. Since 2007, MSF is providing treatment for kala azar in Bihar. While there has been a sharp decline in the number of kala azar cases over the last few years, the disease cannot be eliminated without addressing one of its complications: kala azar-HIV co-infection. Watch this video to find out more.

I wish MSF team success in their humanitarian healthcare initiatives
“I heard about MSF India in 2017 when some of its representatives visited our institute (IIT Jodhpur) seeking donations for the malnutrition campaign in remote areas of India. I wish MSF team success in their humanitarian healthcare initiatives and request others to support their tireless efforts to create a healthy world.”
