Because of epidemiological transition and demographic changes, many nations are still facing many infectious diseases and gradually transitioning to chronic and noncommunicable diseases. Based on the double burden of chronic and infectious diseases globally, researchers and health planners are continuously striving to reduce or eliminate infectious diseases using vaccines, identifying newer antimicrobials in the face of the increasing problem of drug resistance, educating people in preventive measures and personal hygiene, and early and effective screening for both infectious and chronic diseases.
The scope of this Special Issue is to address both chronic and infectious diseases. The editors welcome original articles, brief reports, and review articles (systematic review and meta-analysis) describing research findings on epidemiology, pathogenesis, management, treatment algorithms, clinical trials, microbial agents, etc. on infectious diseases. Similarly, this Special Issue provides a forum in which researchers from a wide variety of disciples can report their findings in a number of chronic and noncommunicable diseases and conditions, including population-based interventions of chronic diseases, minority health, health disparities, and disease prediction models.
