About the Journal

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.

Zoonotic Diseases

A zoonotic disease is a disease that can be passed between animals and humans. Zoonotic diseases can be caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. These diseases are very common. Scientists estimate that more than 6 out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are spread from animals.

Chagas Disease

Chagas disease, also known as American trypanosomiasis, is a potentially life-threatening illness caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi). It is found mainly in endemic areas of 21 Latin American countries1, where it is mostly vector-borne transmitted to humans by contact with faeces of triatomine bugs, known as 'kissing bugs', among other names, depending on the geographical area.

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).

Fifths Disease

Fifth disease is a viral infection caused by parvovirus B19. The virus only infects humans; it's not the same parvovirus that dogs and cats can get. Fifth disease mostly affects children. Symptoms can include a low fever, cold symptoms, and a headache. Then you get a red rash on your face. It looks like a "slapped cheek." The rash can spread to the arms, legs, and trunk. Adults who get it might also have joint pain and swelling.
