- Progress Report on Neglected Tropical Disease Drug Donation Programs; http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0149291816301448.
“Donations are a necessary but insufficient condition for patient access to neglected disease drugs. Additional resources must be allocated to ensure delivery of donated products to patients. In addition, drug donation programs should provide explicit descriptions of program objectives, measurements of the impacts of their programs, and extension of all donation commitments through 2020. To achieve this, multiple stakeholders with a vested interest in reducing the burden of neglected diseases must collaborate in a multipronged approach toward NTD elimination”.
- Where is the policy in health policy and systems research agenda?; http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/94/4/15-156281.pdf.
“While health systems research has been recognized as an important element for strengthening health systems, there is a relative lack of research on policy, policy processes and their implementation. Given the importance of policy change to health system development, this is a critical gap in the health policy and systems research field”.

- Trends and spatial patterns of mortality related to neglected tropical diseases in Brazil; http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2405673115300854.
“We analysed nationwide trends and spatial distribution of NTD-related mortality in Brazil. We included all death certificates in Brazil from 2000 to 2011, in which NTDs were recorded as any causes of death. A total of 100,814/12,491,280 (0.81%) death certificates were identified, which mentioned at least one NTD”.
- Epidemiological data accessibility in Brazil; http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S147330991630007X.
“Here we report challenges faced, particularly in Brazil, for timely, lawful access to governmental collected disease-notification data that are essential to understand the current Zika virus epidemic, and any future public health emergency”.
- Neglected Tropical Diseases in the Anthropocene: The Cases of Zika, Ebola, and Other Infections; http://journals.plos.org/plosntds/article?id=10.1371/journal.pntd.0004648.
“While we advance through a geological epoch that increasingly reflects human intervention on a massive scale, we might expect to see the continued expansion of epidemic neglected tropical diseases, as we have recently seen for Zika and Ebola virus infections”.
- Global Health Working Group White Paper on Fostering Global Health Innovation; http://jcie.or.jp/cross/globalhealth/2016ghwg_g7paper.pdf.
“This policy brief argues that increasing the G7’s investments in global health innovation is a sound – and necessary – investment that will yield dividends in terms of economic, diplomatic and humanitarian progress. Based on interviews with key leaders in global health, this policy brief concludes that the most significant impediments to global health innovation are: insufficient funding (...); regulatory complexities and systemic redundancies in licensing new global health products (...); inefficiencies in global information sharing and collaboration”.
