The initiative to prepare a course such as this one is really praiseworthy and have probably absorbed a tremendous amount of effort. Therefore, some few comments are posted here with a view on contributing to improve future editions of it. 1\. Content: Very interesting and relevant. However, the material is presented in a very superficial way, without details or explanation of the involved physiological phenomena. Not much "whys". 2\. Instructors: This course involves many instructors. Most of then just read the slides and have very strong accent. Sometimes, it is difficult to follow what is being said. 3\. Slides: Mostly bulleted text on white plain background. Very little pictures, diagrams or videos are used. Many acronyms are used without prior definition. Sometimes the slides become cluttered with a large number of latin names of the various protozoans, worms and vectors. 4\. Quizzes: Many questions are repeated, some use confus...

Quizzes: Many questions are repeated, some use confusing wording, some are misplaced and there are too many typos. Some are "trick questions"... 5\. Reading Material: A significant number of text is provided. These are mostly, freely available, but some are not. No handouts are provided. 6\. Video and audio: Mostly OK, but problems such as sudden increase or decrease in the audio volume may occur.
