About this book

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is highly endemic for several neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), including viral, bacterial, protozoan and helminth infections. This new volume covers the most prevalent NTDs found in about 22 MENA countries emphasizing the disease burden, clinical manifestations and control approaches. Each individual chapter deals with one specific disease and is written by a group of experts on that topic.

Reviews

“The volume reads as a collection of lectures comprising a fascinating survey of the public health and tropical medicine issues of the MENA region … . The final product succeeds in providing an interdisciplinary framework to those engaging directly in relevant fields both in endemic and nonendemic regions, with thoroughly referenced text that offers a springboard for deeper study. The content could help shape public policy in the years to come.” (David A. Miller, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Vol. 61, September, 2015)

“The authors wish to get commitment from research institutions, funding agencies, and government agencies and direct the book at researchers in infectious diseases and microbiology as well as people associated with nonprofit organizations and government officials. … This well-written book succeeds in highlighting the disease burden of a number of infections that have not received the attention they deserve from governments, nonprofit organizations, and even researchers. This is a needed book in a neglected field.” (Amir S. Gholami, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2014)
