Infectious Diseases of Poverty: 10th Anniversary

77665589The journal Infectious Diseases of Poverty (IDP) was launched on October 25, 2012. The “One Health-One World” concept remains in focus with the least developed countries at the epicentre of the publication activities. The year 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of IDP. Four major successful approaches were accomplished by the creation of the IDP publication platform that has advanced research and evidence building leading to improved public health interventions in poor settings as follows: elevating impact through articles on essential topics and key thematic series; dedication to the original goals in changing times; promotion of quality-publication thanks to the editorial board members; capacity building through training courses and research forums.
