    Very thoughtful article. Well done. As far as most needed goes, the sentimental favourite would have to be HIV, but on sheer need my pick would be dengue. Love to hear the thoughts of others.

  2. Gregg Lucksinger says:

    I think HIV and Malaria tie for first priority on this list. Both Africa and S.E. Asia would be transformed if freed from the burden of these two diseases. Notably absent from this list is Hepatitis C. I wonder if some day we’ll see vaccines against pathogens such as Bornavirus and Toxoplasma that are being increasingly implicated as contributors to mental illness.
