Emerging Neglected Tropical Diseases

Neglected tropical diseases are historically neglected at the community, national, and international levels and are endemic in many under-developed and developing countries. They affect populations living in poverty especially without proper sanitation and in close contact with various infectious vectors and disease causing livestocks and causes significant health and financial burdens across underdeveloped nations and widely impacts their socio-economic statuses. Neglected tropical diseases are caused by bacteria, virus, parasites, helminthes, protozoans etc. These including lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, and soil-transmitted helminthiasis, represent a serious burden to public health. Unlike many public-health risks, such as malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV, the burden of human suffering caused by neglected tropical diseases remains poorly recognised by the global public-health community.
