Emerging Infectious Disease

An infectious disease whose occurrence has increased in the past years or threatens to increase is termed as emerging. These diseases include new infections, previously unrecognized infections and old infections reappearing due to antimicrobial resistance and public health issues due to unhygienic conditions. Many emerging diseases are zoonotic - an animal reservoir incubates the organism, with only occasional transmission into human populations.

Emerging infectious diseases are a significant burden on global economies and public health. Their emergence is thought to be driven largely by socio-economic, environmental and ecological factors. Many of contributing factors are interrelated. For example, war creates crowded conditions leading to contaminated drinking water, unsanitary facilities, disruption of basic health services, and easier spread of infectious agents. Global infectious diseases are new and re-emerging infectious diseases that were once unknown or thought to be waning, along with recognition that drug resistance, hygiene, economic and environmental factors have promoted both reemergence and increased mortality. The global infectious diseases includes AIDS, TB, malaria, influenza, and cholera.
