The Population Ecology and Socio-Epidemiology speciality section of Frontiers in Tropical Diseases aims to publish high quality theoretical and applied research that investigates and examines the complex interactions between development dynamics, population ecologies of diseases, and impacts of human-natural systems undergoing rapid transitions.
Challenges to better understanding of current and emergent health and disease burdens and their modification in the tropics stem from complex interactions between development dynamics, population ecologies of diseases, and impacts of human-natural systems undergoing rapid transitions.
The Population Ecology and Socio-Epidemiology speciality section of Frontiers in Tropical Diseases aims to publish high quality theoretical and applied research that investigates and examines these complex social-natural system interactions and their implications for both generating new understanding of disease transmission and propagation in tropical settings, and development of the required integrated approaches for achieving either the sustainable management or elimination of ongoing persistent diseases or prevention of novel emergent health problems of the future. Topics covered by this section should include, but not limited to:
- Multi-determinant approaches to analyses of disease ecology and epidemiology
- Social and political epidemiology
- Socio-ecological modelling
- Parasite systems biology
- Spatial epidemiology
- Multi-disease system dynamics
- Community vulnerability and resilience studies
- Environment, biodiversity and disease transmission
- Urbanization and tropical diseases
- Big data and computational science approaches to disease estimation and analysis
- Sustainable integrated disease control
- Community engagement and disease governance models
- Tropical health economics and integrated policy development
All studies must contribute insights into the multi-scale, multi-dimensional human-natural system drivers of disease propagation, persistence, control, and emergence in the tropical settings of the world. New social theory of disease propagation and control, and novel analytical/modelling frameworks for investigating and simulating the integrated social-ecological transmission dynamics of tropical diseases will be particularly welcome.
