Welcome to the research guide for Topical diseases: a geographical inquiry. Imagine you are a consultant for the company, PANDEMIC FUTURES, which specialises in tropical disease management. The disease threats from overcrowding, climate change and resource scarcity are already a reality for some communities. You are to prepare for an interview with government officials from a country affected by a tropical disease, other than Ebola. The interview will include questions relating to the nature, vulnerability and management of the tropical disease in the selected country. Tropical diseases include malaria, zika, dengue, cholera and many more.
"Tropical disease, any disease that is indigenous to tropical or subtropical areas of the world or that occurs principally in those areas. Examples of tropical diseases include malaria, cholera, Chagas disease, yellow fever, and dengue." (Britannica, 2018)
