Special Issue "Occupational and Work-Related Diseases in Developing/Tropical Countries"
A special issue of Tropical Medicine and Infectious Disease (ISSN 2414-6366).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 September 2021.
The growing industrialization and urbanization in the developing world, as well as the increased global need for communication and health services, generate a wide variety of health hazards. These exposomes put workers at risk of developing communicable (CDs) and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), depending on the nature of the hazards. Occupational exposome also includes biological and chemical agents in both the living and working environments. For instance, researchers in the health sector, on the one hand, are constantly in contact with biological hazards; one the other hand, healthcare workers who are in contact daily with patients are reported to be at high risk of occupational infectious disease, sometimes with a potential outbreak occurrence. Moreover, pollutants and physical factors present in the working environment may lead to the development of a wide array of occupational diseases. This Special Issue will cover original and review articles related to epidemiological, experimental, diagnostic, and interventional studies, as well as clinical trials, on diseases caused by health risks in occupational settings as well as other types of health issues that occur at the workplace.
