Neglected diseases, a group of tropical illnesses especially endemic in low-income countries, constitute a major market failure. As such, they need to be controlled by means of appropriate public policies and governmental intervention. These diseases impact almost exclusively populations with very low purchasing power, and therefore private pharmaceutical researchers, developers and manufacturers have little incentive to invest in research and development (R&D), remedies and infrastructure that offer prevention or treatment against them.
