Tropical diseases are a serious business, particularly in the developing world, so it's good to know that the World Health Organization has had an independent scientific research group working in this area since 1975. From their homepage, visitors will find sections titled "Research Results", "Grants", and "Publications". Visitors who may not be familiar with their work will want to look over the "Headline News" area, as it brings together news features on river blindness, malaria eradication, and community-led public health initiatives. The "Research Results" area is a fine way to learn more about the organization's work over the past decade, and the "Publications" area contains working papers organized by year and over two dozen valuable training aids. Additionally, visitors looking for material related to a specific tropical disease can click directly on visual icons representing malaria, leprosy, dengue, and chagas disease.
