The National Library of Medicine, the world’s largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, has produced a new digital collection, Tropical Disease Motion Pictures. This is a collection of films and videos on the battle against tropical diseases. The collection comprises 46 titles from the Library’s collections that illustrate the battle against tropical disease. The materials range from research documentaries, interviews with noted scientists, and public health education campaigns, to films shot on location in regions beset by cholera, dengue fever, and yellow fever, demonstrating local and international efforts to curb their devastating impact. Produced between 1927 and 2007, the online content is a component of the Library’s Digital Collections. For more information on the collection please check out the National Library of Medicine news article.
