Tropical Medicine

Tropical medicine, medicine used for diseases that usually occur in countries with tropical or subtropical climates. Tropical medicine is an important part of global health, especially as it covers preventable diseases that affect poor communities and regions. Diseases covered by tropical medicine include serious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis; neglected tropical diseases such as Chagas disease, Onchocerciasis (water blindness) and schistosomiasis; and some non-communicable diseases such as malnutrition.

Tropical medicine began to emerge in the 19th century, when doctors treating peasants and soldiers in the hot climate of Europe first encountered unknown diseases. The last quarter of the 19th century saw several major advances in the treatment of tropical diseases.Scottish physician Sir Patrick Manson, for example, has shown that the bacteria that cause filariasis is transmitted by mosquito bite. Other diseases that emerged soon after were mosquitoes, including malaria in 1898 and yellow fever in 1900. lice in typhus and snails in schistosomiasis. Many of the early efforts to control tropical diseases included measures such as strict irrigation and other mosquito-proof areas. These and other environmental measures are still the most effective, despite the introduction of new drugs, especially new antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs, without exposure to certain tropical diseases. According to one of the recent publications, more than a billion people, one-sixth of the world’s population are suffering from tropical diseases. We would like to invite all the researchers and scientists from the field of epidemiology, virologists, parasitologists, logisticians, microbiologists, public health.
