Neglected tropical diseases (NTD) will be eradicated from the root only through awareness. But this is possible only when people are aware of the illnesses and get treatment by reaching the hospital on time.

Harmful tropical diseases include lymphatic filariasis (elephant feet), visceral leishmaniasis (kala-azar), leprosy (leprosy), dengue, chikungunya, snakebite, rabies, etc.

It is possible to prevent these diseases, but still, thousands of people in the country either die or become disabled every year due to these diseases. It is vital to make the people sensitize towards these diseases.

 

These diseases are caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and toxins. You should visit a medical specialist near you even if you have mild symptoms.

According to the Global Burden of Disease Study report, 11 out of 16 neglected diseases are from India, the highest globally.

The areas that lack access to clean drinking water and disposal of human waste cases are on the rise. With increasing awareness, people are slowly paying attention to remain healthy.

 

Tips to prevent NTD

Keep these things in mind:

  • Don't let the water stagnate
  • Wear full sleeve clothing
  • Get tested if you see symptoms
  • Use mosquito net while sleeping
