This study examines the roles globalization plays in the spread of neglected tropical diseases like malaria and measles from region to region. Based on the analyzed data in 7 global regions, the study found that measles dropped from 1755 measles cases in all measured regions to 19 measles cases, 92.3 times, or 923% between 2000 and 2005. Conversely, the study found an unexplainable symmetrical increase between 2010 and 2014 from the original 19 measles cases to 1540 cases, 81.05 times, or approximately 811% regionally worldwide. The study also found that neglecting tropical diseases by presumed and assumed safer regions’ leaders as defensive mechanisms, were ineffective, inefficient, and in proficient; because malaria and measles continue to spread from region to region worldwide; regardless of efforts. The implication of this study is to assist international public health officials, public policy officials, and global leaderships to rethink, refocus, and revisit their treatments modalities, spread prevention methodologies, and practical approaches in addressing tropical neglected diseases such as malaria and particularly measles, which could eventually bring some positive social changes regionally; worldwide.
