Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Changes in infectious disease transmission patterns are unprecedented in this current climate. There is a need for a better understanding of the causal relationships, in order to predict the future impacts of this on children’s health. In addition, health care workers are likely to see an increasingly number of cases due to human and environmental displacement. An international collaborative effort with an early and integrated model of care is required to resolve this. Meanwhile, there is urgent requirement for a study on the trend and pattern of these rare paediatric infectious diseases in our population. This study will undoubtedly elucidate the modes of indigenous transmission, treatment and preventive measures

In this Special Issue of Pharmacy, we are seeking, in particular, case reports, case series, and reviews that describe rare paediatric infectious diseases, vaccine preventable diseases and pharmocotherapy. Authors are also invited to submit articles or original research that might relate to imported infections, which may be endemic in other countries but rare in the region of study.

The principle aim of this Special Issue is to share good practices amongst health care providers, especially in relation to uncommon and rare infections in children and provide evidence-based practice for learning and educational development of health professionals.
