Canadian contributions to research on neglected tropical diseases

Updated: Sep 27, 2021

Members of the Threads Lab team (Alison Krentel, Amy Davis and Leshawn Benedict) together with some of the Canadian Network for Neglected Tropical Disease Steering Group members, published this latest paper providing insight into the contributions Canadian researchers have made to advancing the knowledge base on all 20 Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) over the last decade (2010 to 2019). A total of 1,790 publications were retrieved, giving an average of over 160 articles per year. Authors’ institutions were from all Canadian provinces. While all 20 NTDs were addressed in these publications, the 5 most studied were leishmaniasis, dengue fever and chikungunya, Chagas disease, soil–transmitted helminthiases, and rabies. Published in PLoS NTD on July 1 - just in time for Canada Day!
