This section of the Global Innovation Commons is dedicated to the fields of disease prevention and public health. The list is comprised of the most neglected diseases that are prevalent in the most marginalized populations. Some of these diseases are known to have preventative measures or acute treatments that are not accessible in the areas which need it the most. Due to the nature of this section of the Global Innovation Commons, we would like to extend a message of honor to those who have died from, lost someone to, suffered from, or will contract these diseases.Without their sacrifice, the research for the treatment and prevention of these devastating diseases would not have been possible. Our goal is to create a massive global awareness about these diseases, thereby significantly reducing their effect and creating a more productive and engaged world for the future.
