[Extract] This editorial, with its focus on tropical health, provides a great opportunity to raise the profile of some regional and rural issues that impinge directly or indirectly on our ability to provide best practice infection control in the tropics. Tropical northern Australia (~40% of the Australian continent) is comprised entirely of areas categorised as regional, rural or remote by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. In addition, tropical Australia is geographically close to other countries with similar climates that are facing enormous infection control challenges of their own. This geographical proximity provides wonderful opportunities for international research collaboration on infection control. This editorial is confined to Australian issues and briefly discusses the international implications.
