About This Special Issue
Tropical diseases are not of recent origin or approach, however, they continue to be a serious public health problem, since they are neglected despite the fact that one billion people in the world suffer from some such pathology, particularly poor people or who live in marginal rural or urban regions, the economic resources that are invested in research, boarding and control programs are insufficient despite the magnitude of the impact that these diseases cause on the economy of the countries and within the affected family , since they can be chronic, disabling and deadly, hence the study of tropical diseases in areas as diverse as prevention, control, elimination and eradication is currently being promoted.
