Journal of Tropical Diseases & Public Health

About

Public health is an important medical and social concern at any moment. Constant battle against the evil diseases has been turned as a virtue for human being. Emerging pandemics, epidemics are always challenging our intellect, understanding and capabilities. Among all the diseases, tropical diseases are in the summit of our concern due to the heavy death toll claimed every year.

Parasitic, viral, protozoan, helminthic diseases are affecting humans and other species with their ever altering strategies against the standard treatment regime. Tropical Diseases & Public Health deals with the diseases that are prevalent in or unique to tropical and subtropical regions. Insects such as mosquitoes and flies are the most common tropical disease carrier or vector. Journal of Tropical Diseases & Public Health is an Open Access and peer reviewed journal aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the field and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide. Multiple diseases are being monitored and under strict vigilance of global surveillance agencies yet cases are being reported regularly for chikungunya, dengue, chagas disease, leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis, leprosy, tuberculosis, onchocerciasis, sexually transmitted infections, chagas disease, helminths, african trypanosomiasis, TB-HIV, coinfection, buruli ulcer, trachoma, yaws, tropical medicine, tropical diseases etc. Journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Tropical Diseases & Public Health or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Ebola Disease The Ebola virus causes an acute, serious illness which is often fatal if untreated. Ebola virus disease (EVD) first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks, one in Nzara, Sudan, and the other in Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo. The latter occurred in a village near the Ebola River, from which the disease takes its name.

Parasitism Parasitism is a relationship between two species of plants or animals in which one benefits at the expense of the other, sometimes without killing the host organism.

Chikungunya Virus Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne viral disease first described during an outbreak in southern Tanzania in 1952. It is an RNA virus that belongs to the alphavirus genus of the family Togaviridae. The name “chikungunya” derives from a word in the Kimakonde language, meaning “to become contorted”, and describes the stooped appearance of sufferers with arthralgia.

H1N1 (Swine flu) Virus H1N1 is a flu virus. When it was first detected in 2009, it was called “swine flu” because the virus was similar to those found in pigs. The H1N1 virus is currently a seasonal flu virus found in humans. Although it also circulates in pigs, you cannot get it by eating properly handled and cooked pork or pork products.

Salmonella Typhi Infection of Salmonella typhi leads to the development of typhoid, or enteric fever. This disease is characterized by the sudden onset of a sustained and systemic fever, severe headache, nausea, and loss of appetite.

Staphylococcus Aureus Staphylococci (staph) are Gram-positive spherical bacteria that occur in microscopic clusters resembling grapes. Bacteriological culture of the nose and skin of normal humans invariably yields staphylococci.

Tetanus Tetanus is a serious illness caused by Clostridium bacteria. The bacteria live in soil, saliva, dust, and manure. The bacteria can enter the body through a deep cut, like those you might get from stepping on a nail, or through a burn.

Dengue Dengue is transmitted by the bite of a mosquito infected with one of the four dengue virus serotypes. It is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults with symptoms appearing 3-14 days after the infective bite.

Kawasaki Disease Kawasaki disease is a condition that causes inflammation in the walls of medium-sized arteries throughout the body, including the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. Kawasaki disease is also called mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome because it also affects lymph nodes, skin, and the mucous membranes inside the mouth, nose and throat.

Onchocerciasis Onchocerciasis – or “river blindness” – is a parasitic disease caused by the filarial worm Onchocerca volvulus transmitted by repeated bites of infected blackflies (Simulium spp.). These blackflies breed in fast-flowing rivers and streams, mostly in remote villages located near fertile land where people rely on agriculture.

Sexually Transmitted Infections Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are spread primarily through person-to-person sexual contact. There are more than 30 different sexually transmissible bacteria, viruses and parasites. The most common conditions they cause are gonorrhoea, chlamydial infection, syphilis, trichomoniasis, chancroid, genital herpes, genital warts, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and hepatitis B infection.

Malaria Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites. The parasites are spread to people through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitoes, called "malaria vectors", which bite mainly between dusk and dawn.

African Trypanosomiasis Human African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is a vector-borne parasitic disease. It is caused by infection with protozoan parasites belonging to the genus Trypanosoma. They are transmitted to humans by tsetse fly (Glossina genus) bites which have acquired their infection from human beings or from animals harbouring the human pathogenic parasites.

Helminths Soil-transmitted helminth infections are among the most common infections worldwide and affect the poorest and most deprived communities. They are transmitted by eggs present in human faeces which in turn contaminate soil in areas where sanitation is poor. The main species that infect people are the roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), the whipworm (Trichuris trichiura) and hookworms (Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale).

TB-HIV Coinfection TB is a major cause of death among people living with HIV/AIDS, whose impaired immune systems make them particularly vulnerable to the devastating effects of TB. The current challenge is to find ways of preventing both TB and HIV, and to improve diagnosis and management of co-infection.

Hand Foot and Mouth Disease Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a common viral illness that usually affects infants and children younger than 5 years old. However, it can sometimes occur in adults. Symptoms of hand, foot, and mouth disease include fever, mouth sores, and a skin rash.
