Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases & Their Impact

The feasibility of disease control is hampered potentially by vast number of emerging and re-emerging pathogens, the diversity of geographic sources, the potential for rapid global dissemination from these sources, and numerous ecologic and social factors influencing emergence.
A disease is an emerging disease only when it is completely a new infection or it has recently increased in impact and severity and affected newer locations across the globe. Re-Emerging diseases are the ones who were known as major health problems at one time, but had declined and now are again becoming health problems for the people.
