The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has highlighted how research concerning public and global health is now more crucial than ever. In 2019, the WHO listed vaccine hesitancy and multidrug-resistant organisms, communicable diseases (HIV, Ebola, and Dengue), and climate change as among the top 10 current threats to global health. A total of 1.5 million lives could be saved each year by achieving optimal vaccine coverage, and, what is even more worrisome are the WHO predictions that by 2050 we could reach 10 million deaths per year due to antimicrobial resistance.
Given the need to increase scientific knowledge in these areas, we invite manuscripts on all public health aspects related to infectious diseases to contribute to this healthcare Special Issue. Topics can be related to bacterial/viral vaccines (safety, efficacy, and vaccine hesitancy/confidence), infectious disease containment measures (devices, quarantines, etc.), and antimicrobial resistance (diagnostics, therapies, surveillance, and response). This invitation is open to both research articles and reviews.
