A new study has shown that many poor people in the U.S. are suffering from neglected diseases. ..New York (ChattahBox) – A new study has shown that many poor people in the U.S. are suffering from neglected diseases.

The new study, conducted by the Sabin Vaccine Institute’s Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, confirmed that thousands of poor people in the U.S. are suffering from these neglected tropical diseases.

The diseases come from Africa, Asia, Latin America, etc. and consist of parasitic, bacteria, and congenital diseases.

The report stresses the importance of raising awareness of this major problem in the U.S. that is having an impact on the lives of many poor people.

This seems to be a growing problem in the U.S. which is not nearly going noticed as much as it should.

The belief that these types of diseases do not impact people in the U.S. seems to be completely false.
