Over a billion people suffer from relatively minor fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot and thrush, while more serious fungal infections are thought to cause around 1.5 million deaths worldwide each year. Human fungal disease burden could be greatly reduced by improving development of, and global access to, new antifungal treatments and rapid diagnostics. Strengthening public health capabilities and research on understanding and preventing fungal infection is also important.
