Abstract

Fungal infections are neglected by social and political communities. However, they affect more than a billion people, resulting in approximately 11·5 million life-threatening infections and more than 1·5 million deaths annually.1,2 There have been enormous advances in fungal diagnostics and antifungal drug development over the past 20 years, but most of the world's population has not yet benefited from these advances. The Lancet Infectious Diseases Fungal Infections Series brings readers up to date on fungal infections and addresses how fungal infection management can be integrated into health systems in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs).
