Abstract

Globally, infectious diseases often disproportionately affect women, and have implications for the health of future generations. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis, malaria, and schistosomiasis are four such pathogens. Infection with these organisms has a broad impact on maternal child health in many areas of the developing world, and global initiatives to control these diseases will significantly improve the health of generations to come.
