What are Tropical Medicine and why are they important?
Tropics are the region of the earth surrounding the equator at the centre of earth. It’s a warm region where the temperature ranges between 22 to 35°C.
Countries of tropical regions of the planet are severely suffering from infectious diseases as compared to the countries of the temperate world. There are many environmental and biological factors present in these regions that support high levels of biodiversity of pathogens, vectors and hosts, however some social factors conjointly undermine the efforts to manage these diseases. Such infectious diseases are termed as tropical diseases. Every year Tropical Diseases are responsible for millions of deaths, especially in the Tropical regions of the World and one-sixth of the world population is infected with Neglected Tropical Diseases and additional two billion are at risk. It is reported that approximately half of the world population is under the risk of being exposed to infection with Tropical Diseases causing Micro-organisms.
Many of the major tropical disease includes Buruli-ulcer, Chagas Diseases, Dengue, Malaria, typhoid, yellow fever, Ebola and hookworm infections as well as exceedingly rare diseases like lagochilascaris minor and many other. These diseases mainly are spread in the region of Africa, Asia and western pacific. Various means for the spread of these diseases are infections (Bacterial, Viral and fungal). Most cases affect subtropical region except Japan, China and Australia. Majority of cases are in western and central Africa. As per the projection of various tropical medicine journals and the WHO these diseases have been reported to affects more than 33 countries in the region of Africa and western Asia. As a result of improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene many of these diseases have been controlled or even eliminated from developed countries,. Recently medicine has emerged as a vital discipline for this study.
Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with health problems that occur uniquely, are more widespread, or prove more difficult to control in tropical and subtropical regions.
The target audience of Tropical Medicine 2018 is professionals in all the fields related to medicine used for treatment of tropical disease and their research globally. This includes Tropical Medicine Researchers, Epidemiologists, Microbiologists, Physicians, Public Health Professionals, Community Heath Physicians, Veterinarians, Communication Specialists, Statisticians, Social Scientists, Environmental Health,Experts, Business Professionals, Foundation Leaders, Direct Service Providers, Policymakers, Researchers, Academicians, Advocates Policy Makers and Others.
