Biography

      The manipulation of natural products compatible with the environment, in the management and control of infectious and parasitic diseases, promises to break the cycle and incidence of diseases. Untamed environmental factors in some tropical regions have culminated in alterations in the eco-system resulting into big storms and unprecedented flooding as the rivers overflow their banks with the resultant high prevalence of diseases. Malaria alone affects hundreds of millions of people in third world countries causing millions of death .

There is a need for cutting edge research on the most prevalent and medically important tropical infectious diseases ( TIDS ) in order to meet the challenges at the international and local levels, also  the need to bring about accelerated progress in the eradication of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDS ) and Diseases Emergence and control , dwelling on new possibilities that will fast track efforts to bring the scourge of diseases under control .

 

In furtherance of this goal therefore, Dr. Love Nma Allison focuses on the development of eco-friendly approaches for prevention and eradication of diseases, taking account of the problems posed by pollution , pests , parasites ,environmental denaturation and natural disasters  with a view to providing useful short and long term solutions.
