- Conflict may lead to the displacement of large populations into temporary settlements or camps with overcrowding and rudimentary shelters, inadequate safe water and sanitation, and increased exposure to disease vectors during the acute phase of the emergency. (cdc.gov)

- This network is a follow-up of the Network for diagnostics of "imported" viral diseases (ENIVD) collaborative action. (europa.eu)
- Circles indicate diseases of viral origin, stars indicate diseases of bacterial origin, and triangles indicate diseases of parasitic origin. (cdc.gov)
- The approach helps to generate an understanding of ecosystem factors that influence the emergence and spread of both old and new diseases, considers temporal and spatial dimensions of disease infection and allows systems thinking. (scielo.org.za)
- Infection is the invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease -causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to the infectious agents and the toxins they produce. (wikipedia.org)
- Infectious disease , also known as transmissible disease or communicable disease , is illness resulting from an infection. (wikipedia.org)
- The word infection can denote any presence of a particular pathogen at all (no matter how little) but also is often used in a sense implying a clinically apparent infection (in other words, a case of infectious disease). (wikipedia.org)

- Thanks to antibiotics and other modern treatment options, scarlet fever today is a fairly rare disease and considered a mild Streptococcal infection. (mercola.com)
- Also, physicians were advised in 2004 to suspect cutaneous leishmaniasis in military personnel who were deployed to areas where the infection is present. (encyclopedia.com)
- These populations may be more vulnerable to infection and disease because of high levels of undernutrition or malnutrition, low vaccine coverage, or long-term stress. (cdc.gov)
- Of approximately 374 million cattle in Latin America and the Caribbean, 70% are held in areas where M. bovis infection rates among cattle exceed 1% (3). (scielosp.org)

- While the risk factors and the pattern of diseases causing CVD may differ from those in Europe and North America, the impact is greater in Africa and is compounded by the persisting and difficult-to-eradicate communicable diseases. (medicusmundi.ch)
- Many professional associations and other bodies have emerged in many countries of Africa all with the aim of increasing awareness, knowledge and treatment of CVD (5). (medicusmundi.ch)

(ukri.org)
- CDC has added a risk-based approach for aliens screened outside of the United States that is based on medical and epidemiologic factors, to determine when and where additional screening, testing and treatment for specific infectious diseases should be conducted. (cdc.gov)
- He has pioneered the analysis of human polygenic diseases that dissect gene structure and link the expression features to disease risk. (stanford.edu)

- Examples of emerging infectious diseases in conflict situations, where several overlapping risk factors are often involved, are numerous ( Figure ). (cdc.gov)
- Notifications of certain communicable diseases and conditions from doctors, laboratories, hospitals, schools and child care centres are actively followed up with clinicians and clients to reduce the risk of these diseases within the Hunter New England area. (nsw.gov.au)
- Background: Emerging patterns in epidemiological transitions have led to increased risk for Non-Communicable Diseases and infectious conditions globally. (who.int)
- A communicable disease (CD) is an illness due to a specific infectious agent or its toxic product that arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person, animal or inanimate reservoir (e.g. from a food source or contaminated water) to a susceptible host. (scielo.org.za)
Surveillance and response1
- Following this assessment of preparedness and readiness measures, a 90-day regional action plan was developed and implemented during the first quarter of 2015 to help the countries address the critical gaps identified by WHO in the areas of surveillance and response for prevention, detection and effective containment measures.
