Dr. Anjalatchi Muthukumaran | Avantika Dixit


Abstract: Neglected trophical diseases is one of the ignored diseases all over country leading to major area like Africa, Asia, America and India. Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a diverse group of 20 conditions that are mainly prevalent in tropical areas, where they affect more than 1 billion people who live in impoverished communities. India has the world's largest absolute burden of at least 10 major NTDs, including hookworm, dengue, lymphatic filariasis, leprosy, visceral leishmaniasis or kala-azar and rabies. "NTDs continue to pose significant health burdens on some of the most disadvantaged communities in India. NTDs are found in several countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. NTDs are especially common in tropical areas where people do not have access to clean water or safe ways to dispose of human waste. The following six NTDs can be controlled or even eliminated through mass administration of safe and effective medicines or other, effective interventions: Dracunculiasis (Guinea Worm Disease), Lymphatic Filariasis, Onchocerciasis, Schistosomiasis, Soil-transmitted Helminths (STH) (i. e., Ascaris, Hookworm, and Whipworm), Trachoma etc. Controlling the vectors (e. g., mosquitoes, black flies) that transmit these diseases and improving basic water, sanitation, and hygiene are highly effective strategies against these NTDs.
