The diseases that occur solely or principally, in the tropical and subtropical regions are called as Tropical diseases. These diseases are less or not prevalent in temperate climates because of the occurrence of a cold season that controls the insect population by forcing hibernation.

It plays an important role in managing, mitigating and preventing the spread of diseases.
