Fungal infection knowledge gap in Ethiopia
Fungal infections are associated with morbidity and mortality especially in in patients with underlying medical conditions. With the increasing number of immune-compromised patients, the burden of invasive fungal infections became widespread.
In any country, data on fungal infection is important to design appropriate programs as well as to plan and implement further studies. A review of literature on fungal infections in Ethiopia shows that there is paucity of evidences on this problem and existing ones focused mainly on superficial and mucosal fungal infections while there is almost none on an invasive or systemic infection [Ethiop. J. Health Dev. 2017;31(2):124-126].
