In some parts of the world, the sting or bite from a mosquito, sandfly, flea or tick can drastically change one’s life – it can mean being infected with a neglected tropical disease or malaria. These diseases impact millions around the world, and Bayer contributes to addressing this humanitarian challenge through collaboration and by applying its expertise in human, animal and plant health to mobilize science towards preventing causes and providing cures.
The Public Health magazine is designed to inform and foster dialogue, with articles and stories on neglected tropical diseases and malaria presented from various stakeholder perspectives. Because at Bayer, we believe that greater awareness and understanding can go a long way in the fight against these diseases and to making a difference in peoples’ lives. We invite you to an interesting read and feel free to share the articles. We hope this magazine will be a reference for collaboration, exchange and progress in this important area of Public Health.
