- with the Sustainable Development Goals and Non-Communicable Diseases
Malaria, with an emphasis on medication resistance.
- One Health and the health of the whole planet. In the context of social, economic, and environmental factors, the consideration of human health with animal health and the environment as well as political considerations
- Emerging illnesses, for example, are among the hot topics.
- Infections that are resistant to drugs
- NTDs of the skin, such as mycetoma
- NCDs and co-morbidity
- Changes in the climate
