Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) including microRNAs (miRs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as key regulators of gene expression in immune cells development and function. Their expression is altered in different physiological and disease conditions, hence making them attractive targets for the understanding of disease etiology and the development of adjunctive control strategies, especially within the current context of mitigated success of control measures deployed to eradicate these diseases. In this review, we summarize our current understanding of the role of ncRNAs in the etiology and control of major human tr...

Spiegelman In Sub-Saharan Africa, communicable and other tropical infectious diseases remain major challenges apart from the continuing HIV/AIDS epidemic. Recognition and prevalence of non-communicable diseases have risen throughout Africa, and the reimagining of healthcare delivery is needed to support communities coping with not only with HIV, tuberculosis, and COVID-19, but also cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and depression. Many non-communicable diseases can be prevented or treated with low-cost interventions, yet implementation of such care has been limited in the region. In this Perspective piece, we...

[African Union] The African continent is making headway in the fight against malaria among young children. Being at the forefront in establishing, strengthening, and supporting member states in disease control and surveillance for priority diseases including HIV and AIDs, tuberculosis, malaria, COIVD-19, hepatitis, and non-communicable diseases in the region, the African Union (AU) through the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) has welcomed the World Health Organization's (WHO) historic go-ahea

Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2021 Oct 11:tpmd210899. doi: 10.4269/ajtmh.21-0899. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCOVID-19 has had considerable global impact; however, in sub-Saharan Africa, it is one of several infectious disease priorities. Prioritization is normally guided by disease burden, but the highly age-dependent nature of COVID-19 and that of other infectious diseases make comparisons challenging unless considered through metrics that incorporate life-years lost and time lived with adverse health. Therefore, we compared the 2020 mortality and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) lost estimates for malaria, tuberculosis, an...
