In this Tuesday, April 2, 2013 photo, Anup Kumar, 4, is treated for encephalitis at a hospital in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh state, India. Encephalitis is sweeping through northern India, killing at least 118 children in what officials worry could become the deadliest outbreak in nearly a decade. While India's efforts against polio and tuberculosis get plenty of attention, the poor farmers and day laborers of eastern Uttar Pradesh state face an almost-silent health emergency, battling a disease that has killed thousands of children over the past eight years.
