About this book

Communicable diseases are the main health problem encountered in developing countries, whether they are food-borne, respiratory or transmitted by insects, but are quickly becoming a global issue. By grouping diseases by means of transmission and covering principles of epidemiology for each disease, Communicable Diseases addresses both basic principles and advanced concepts, illustrated with focus boxes, bullet lists and figures. This fourth edition of "Communicable Disease Epidemiology and Control" is fully updated throughout and includes new chapters on integrated disease management and the increased risks of disease among pregnant women. The latest research on the control of communicable diseases is included, assisting in identifying the best method of control. An essential resource for students and lecturers in public health and medical sciences, Communicable Diseases will also assist doctors and health workers in their management of this fast-changing area. It is suitable for students and lecturers in public health and medical sciences, doctors and health workers.
