Infectious diseases affect everyone. They account for 26% of all deaths worldwide, and unlike chronic diseases, they have the potential for explosive global impacts. In An Introduction to Infectious Diseases, get an accessible overview of diseases--from the mundane to the fatal--from a renowned physician who specializes in this topic. An emerging infectious disease (EID) is an infectious disease whose incidence has increased recently (in the past 20 years), and could increase in the near future. Such diseases do not respect national boundaries. The minority that are capable of developing efficient transmission between humans can become major public and global concerns as potential causes of epidemics or pandemics.

  This chapter focuses on newly discovered, emerging, and reemerging respiratory viruses causing acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs). In the population at large, each person experiences on average two to three ARTIs every year. Furthermore, it is the most frequent reason for emergency department visits and hospital admissions of : Fleur M. Moesker, Pieter L.A. Fraaij, Albert D.M.E. Osterhaus.   It was officially declared a public health emergency on 1 February , following a WHO mission to Brazil where the disease began to spread. The disease has been found in 61 countries, and is currently part of campaigns and research and development programmes to provide recommendations and potential diagnostics.

Preventing Emerging Infectious Diseases: A Strategy for the 21st Century describes CDC's plan to combat today's infectious diseases and prevent those of tomorrow.

The global threat of new and reemerging infectious diseases: reconciling U.S. national security and public health policy / Jennifer Brower, Peter Chalk. “MRRC.” Includes bibliographical references. ISBN 1. Communicable diseases—Social aspects. National security. Bioterrorism—Health aspects.

Microbiologic infections acquired from animals, known as zoonoses, pose a risk to public health. An estimated 60% of emerging human pathogens are zoonotic. Of these pathogens, >71% have wildlife origins. These pathogens can switch hosts by acquiring new genetic combinations that have altered pathogenic potential or by changes in behavior or socioeconomic, environmental, or ecologic.

Select up to three search categories and corresponding keywords using the fields to the right. Refer to the Help section for more detailed instructions. The global nature of the threat posed by new and reemerging infectious diseases will require international cooperation in identifying, controlling, and preventing these diseases.

Despite these gains, the continent faces serious challenges from infectious diseases. This is put into context in Table 1, which shows the changing Burden of Disease data globally and for sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), from to Globally the main cause of loss of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) is heart disease, which is an by: 1.

Determinants of Emergence and Reemergence. Historical information as well as microbial sequencing and phylogenetic constructions make it clear that infectious diseases have been emerging and reemerging over millennia, and that such emergences are driven by numerous factors (Table 1).Notably, 60 to 80 percent of new human infections likely originated in animals, disproportionately Cited by: Inthe CDC published “Framework for Preventing Infectious Diseases” to serve as “a roadmap for improving our ability to prevent known infectious diseases and to recognize and control rare, highly dangerous, and newly emerging threats, through a strengthened, adaptable, and multi-purpose U.S.
