Environmental Health and Pathogens

A pathogen or infectious agent is a biological agent that causes disease or illness to the host. The term is most often used for agents that disrupt the normal physiology of a multicellular animal or plant. Pathogens can have strong effects on their hosts and can be important determinants of biological invasions. In environmental systems, the host pathogen interactions may be mediated by direct environmental effects on pathogen communities and host fitness. Environment mediates pathogen transmissions by bacterial, viral, fungal and protozoans’ pathogens which creates risk for the environment.

Pathogens are microorganisms such as viruses or bacteria that are carried in blood and/or bodily fluids and can cause disease in people; including hepatitis B and C and human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV.
