  • UNDISPATCH>> In an op-ed, published Thursday in the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, suggests that "vaccine diplomacy" could improve relations between North Korea and South Korea. From joint neglected tropical disease (NTD) treatment efforts to scientific alliances, Hotez argues that it could be "a breakout year for science and vaccine diplomacy to reduce the disease burden on the Korean peninsula and promote an unprecedented level of scientific collaboration." But according to experts who study the region, Hotez's vision may be a long shot. "DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea] is extremely distrustful and unlikely willing to expose themselves to lethal transmissible diseases in the name of science or anything else," says Roger Cavazos, an associate at the Nautilus Institute for Security and Sustainability, which is based in Berkeley, Calif. (South Korea is also called the Republic of Korea).
