This presentation provides an introduction to one of the major soil transmitted helminths, known as the hookworm. Globally, an estimated total number of 740 million individuals are infected with hookworms; the main risk groups are adolescents and adults.
This presentation provides an introduction to antimalarial drug resistance. First we will focus on how drug resistance is observed and measured. Thereafter we will describe the historical emergence and spread of drug resistance. Third we will focus on molecular aspects of drug resistance, the so-called molecular markers and finally we will describe how we can use our knowledge regarding these molecular markers in the surveillance of drug resistance and eventually help in guide us in the decision-making when developing new drug policies.
This presentation provides an introduction to antimalarial drugs, different treatment and prophylaxis strategies and an overview of which drugs and drug combinations that are currently in use.
This presentation provides a brief introduction to Lymphatic Filarias, hereby the lifecycle and treatment. Lymphatic Filariasis is a disease caused by infections with a mosquito born parasitic roundworm.
