Infectious diseases are a great plague, especially in low and middle income countries. Beyond the actual treatment, an important role is played by early prevention mechanisms, and education of society at large, about existing risks. This paper tackles these two important challenges, describing the current state of the art in this area, and pointing towards the need for both further, more inclusive research, as well as better education in affected countries on infectious diseases.
