Okinawa Infectious Diseases Initiative

This was in a Life Sciences magazine email I get from Elsevier, and is described in an article in Trends in Parasitology.

The Initiative was launched in 2000 and pledged to spend 3 billion US$ on combating infectious disease in developing countries. The article describes the achievements of the Initiative, which concentrated initially on Asia and is now moving to look at Africa.
