This lecture was developed as part of HTWB’s Pakistan Flood Response, a program which aims to support communities and clinicians in Pakistan impacted by devastating floods in 2022. The program was launched in partnership with the National Institute of Kidney and Urological Diseases (NIKUD) Research Hospital at the University of Karachi, Pakistan.
The lecture discusses diagnostic and treatment considerations for superficial fungal skin infections that arise in the setting of emergent natural disasters in resource-limited and austere environments globally. This talk is one of a two-part series on fungal skin infections; for part two, please see Dr. David Chandler’s talk on deep fungal skin infections.
Special thanks to our community partner, Dr. Sakina Naqvi at NIKUD Research Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan.
