Global Epidemiology and Outbreaks

Epidemiology is the study of analysis and distribution of determinants of health and diseased conditions in a defined population. Major areas of the epidemiological study include disease causation, transmission, outbreak investigation, disease surveillance, forensic epidemiology, occupational epidemiology, screening, biomonitoring, and comparisons of treatment effects such as in clinical trials. They rely on other scientific disciplines such as biology for the better understanding of the disease processes, statistics to make efficient use of the data and draw appropriate conclusions, social sciences for the better understanding proximate and distal causes, and engineering for exposure assessment.
