Experts include Frank Lostumbo, National Council for International Health; Dr. Zeda Rosenberg, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Dr. Gabriel Schumnis, Pan-American Health Organization; Dr. Basil Vareldzis, U.S. Agency for International Development; and Dr. Karl Western, American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
