The 21st century presents itself as the informational and knowledge age. The aging population and the technological innovation to medicine have been a constant concern due to the search for the complete state of well-being of the individual.

There is an urgent need for better management of knowledge and integrality of health care, such as the integration, convergence and pragmatism of actions in multiple areas. According to the World Bank and the World Health Organization, half the world's population does not have access to essential health services and more than 1 billion are threatened by neglected diseases. Therefore, information science aid in the complexity of identifying, extracting, and treating the quintillions of data added daily to the Web. After processing by ScripLattes tool thousands of resumes on the Lattes platform, 39,046 triple threat experts have been identified, but only 0.3% are senior competencies. The scientific papers published in Dengue fever, Zika virus and Chikungunya fever are 11,743. The ScripLattes tool proved to be efficient to support in the management of scientific knowledge in public health. Thus, this research provides an overview from the core competencies in triple threat in Brazilian territory and their mainly scientific and technological publications.
