Climate change and vector-borne neglected tropical diseases: Positioning pharmacy practice to drive awareness, prevention and management
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) impact over one billion people annually, and disproportionately affect impoverished communities, particularly women and children in tropical areas, leading to 200,000 annual deaths around the world. In addition, global climate change is affecting the distribution patterns of these diseases and cases are emerging in countries where they had never been a cause for concern. Pharmacists can play a pivotal role in raising awareness of NTDs and in their prevention and management. To commemorate World NTDs Day, FIP invites you to join this event and learn how pharmacists may contribute to eradicating NTDs and improving global health.
