Neglected Tropical Diseases

Neglected tropical diseases are a diverse category of communicable diseases in the tropical and subtropical areas, found in 149 countries. In general, the diseases are caused by bacteria, parasites, helminths, fungi, protozoans, viruses, etc. that affect over one billion people and cost billions of dollars per year to developing economies. Which include lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, and helminthiasis transmitted from the soil, as well as other neglected diseases that pose a severe public health burden. They affect communities living in poverty, especially without adequate hygiene, sanitation, and in close contact with numerous infectious vectors and diseases that cause livestock, and cause significant health and financial burdens across underdeveloped nations and have a major effect on their socio-economic status. The extent of human suffering caused by untreated tropical diseases remains poorly understood by the public health community, unlike other public health threats such as malaria, tuberculosis, dengue fever, leprosy, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, hookworm infection and HIV.
