Tropical Medicine Parasitology

Many infections and infestations that are classified as "tropical diseases" used to be endemic in countries located in the tropics. This includes widespread epidemics such as malaria, Ebola and hookworm infections as well as exceedingly rare diseases like lagochilascaris minor. Many of these diseases have been controlled or even eliminated from developed countries, as a result of improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene.

Tackling infectious diseases, which kill tens of millions of people every year, is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Tropical Medicine and Global Health is researching solutions to the increasingly urgent problems created by infectious diseases. Research topics range from well-publicised killers such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis to emerging diseases such as avian flu to important but unpublicised killers in the developing world such as melioidosis and scrub typhus. We are committed to providing practical solutions that will save lives, and to training and inspiring the next generation of health leaders in the developing world.
