Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the global warning of a potential monkeypox outbreak, which was once considered to be a neglected tropical disease, we cannot languish in the past successes we have achieved on the road to tropical disease control and elimination while ceasing to advance. Traditional efforts to block the transmission of tropical infectious diseases have been implemented with conventional interventions, including management, health policy, epidemiological surveillance, etiological and ecological studies, development of diagnostics and drugs, and vaccine applications. Although those traditional efforts have stopped the transmission of some tropical infectious diseases in certain areas, it is difficulty to sustainably maintain their elimination status. To tackle these challenges, the One Health approach with systems thinking has been proposed to prevent the diseases from re-emerging and rebounding. More researchers have conducted systematic studies to provide more evidence through laboratory technical development, big dataset building and modeling, health policy development, or field pilot investigation with their evaluation tools. Therefore, we publish this Special Issue which aims to promote more studies in this field, and scale-up the application of One Health approaches in block transmission of tropical infectious diseases or prevent those diseases from re-emerging or rebounding.
