Product description

Review

"Under the Big Tree makes a passionate, persuasive argument. Ending NTDs is a low-cost, high-impact way to radically improve the lives of the world's poorest citizens."
 
— George Stephanopoulos, Chief Anchor, ABC News
"The compelling—and largely untold—story of the people and activities addressing the scourge of tropical disease."
 
— Gilbert Burnham, MD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
"An excellent example of partnerships developing around a common cause and an inspiration for those involved in not only neglected tropical diseases but also in improving healthcare for the most neglected of communities."
 
— Adrian Hopkins, MD, Mectizan Donation Program
"Over a billion people worldwide are affected by tropical diseases that are devastating but entirely preventable. This uplifting book chronicles the growing movement to eradicate these maladies and create a safer, healthier planet for all of us."
 
— Adam Grant, New York Times-bestselling author of Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World
"The fight against neglected tropical diseases is one of the most important public health stories of the last quarter century. I recommend this book to anyone looking to understand this underappreciated story."
 
— Elie Hassenfeld, Cofounder and Executive Director, GiveWell
"Under the Big Tree blends fascinating stories from all sides of the fight against neglected tropical diseases with takeaway lessons of collaboration, creativity, and positive systemic change. The result is a book that is accessible, inspiring, and deeply necessary."
 
— Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum
"Under the Big Tree is an inspiring reminder of what is possible when those in the global health field put their faith in people and their trust in evidence."
 
— Margaret Chan, former Director-General, World Health Organization
