Parasitic diseases have public health and clinical importance throughout the world, not just in developing countries. Some parasitic diseases are endemic globally (e.g., toxoplasmosis and cryptosporidiosis), and even those that are endemic primarily in developing countries or in the tropics and subtropics are receiving increasing attention in developed countries, in part because of their importance in returning travelers and immigrants. As clinical interest in and laboratory research about parasitic diseases increase and as the numbers of infected patients increase, so do the numbers of persons working in settings in which they could be exposed to parasites.
