It's been called the Black Fever. Kala Azar affects the poorest of the poor, and is one of the most neglected tropical diseases. The parasitic disease is almost always fatal if left untreated. Doctors Without Borders has been on the frontline of fighting kala azar in India for the past eight years and has treated more than 12,000 patients to date. "Kala Azar: The Road to Elimination" looks at the disease, its victims, and the work done by several organizations to develop a new drug to combat and eliminate it. Produced by Matthew Smeal and Pujya Pascal
