 About TED: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world (find out more).

In this special episode the podcast discusses diseases that are common in tropical countries including tuberculosis, Zika, malaria and schistosomiasis.
