Every year, more than one billion people are infected by vector-borne diseases such as Malaria and Lyme disease and more than one million people die from them. Celebrated annually on April 7, World Health Day highlights a priority area of public health and strives to protect people from these diseases, particularly those living in areas that are most prone to them. This year it will recognize vector-borne diseases which are spread through mosquitoes, sandflies, bugs, ticks and snails that transmit a wide range of parasites and pathogens that can cause many different illnesses. A core element of the campaign is that it advocates for measures to improve awareness and protection in their communities.
As world health is a responsibility shared by all, SAGE is pleased to support this cause and take part in World Health Day by providing free access to several articles chosen by our editors on leading and innovative health research for a limited time:
