This course provides students an understanding of important human parasitic diseases, including their life cycles, vectors of transmission, distribution and epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention and control. Tropical Parasitology is taught by faculty from an area highly impacted by tropical parasites- the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College in Moshi, Tanzania. The faculty include Drs. Frank Mosha and Mramba Nyindo (and two lecturers, Drs. Johnson Matowo and Jovin Kitau). Dr. John Bartlett, Professor of Medicine, Global Health and Nursing at Duke University, joins his faculty colleagues in this effort.

TOP REVIEWS FROM TROPICAL PARASITOLOGY: PROTOZOANS, WORMS, VECTORS AND HUMAN DISEASES
Overall I found the course informative. My last college courses were over 20 years ago. My lack of any medical knowledge did make it a little challenging at times.
A very good expirience for those who love the Parasitology! Very nice expirience. I hope next versions. Greetings from Bolivia.
I really enjoyed doing this course, I was a bit worried about the final exams but I had so much fun doing them. Really happy that I registered for it and I would advise anyone to take part.
Thank you for Coursera to open the courses for anyone in need. I thank Coursera again for the financial aid provided to me to complete my Tropical disease courses.
