Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Infectious diseases are one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in all parts of the world. Deaths from the infectious diseases HIV/AIDS have fallen significantly in recent years, but they are still a leading cause of death in low-income countries. COVID-19, caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, became a top cause of death in 2020. Infectious diseases have plagued us throughout history, epidemics and pandemics have produced major social/economic impacts on populations.
Despite significant advances in infectious disease research and treatment, the control and eradication of infectious diseases face major challenges. This special issue welcomes submissions across the broadest interpretation of these issues, including, but definitely not restricted to, the following:
- Prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, particularly among vulnerable subpopulations (e.g., LGBTQ+);
- Infectious diseases control and prevention in different geographic regions, particularly low-come countries;
- Behavioral interventions for infectious diseases control and prevention;
- Mental health and social impacts of infectious diseases;
Both original research and systematic review papers are welcomed.
