Abstract

La Asamblea Mundial de la Salud ha elegido algunas enfermedades como blancos para la eliminación. Hay mucha esperanza y una alta probabilidad de que varias enfermedades, recientemente llamadas desatendidas, sean eliminadas en las próximas décadas. Vamos a presenciar el fin de la transmisión de la dracunculiasis, la filariosis linfática, la poliomielitis, y en las Américas por lo menos, la oncocercosis. Ya se ven éxitos significativos como la cuasi erradicación de la dracunculiasis y paso importantes en contra de otras aflicciones. [Original Spanish version]

The World Health Assembly has chosen some diseases as targets for elimination. There is much hope and a high likelihood of various diseases, recently called neglected, are eliminated in the coming decades. We will witness the end of transmission of dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, polio, and the Americas at least onchocerciasis. You see significant successes as quasi dracunculiasis eradication and important step against other afflictions. [English translation]
