A scan of health challenges around the globe readily brings to mind a range of infectious illnesses, from HIV to influenza. Yet chronic non-contagious conditions--heart disease, asthma, diabetes, cancer--are more prevalent, and their rates soaring, across the developed and developing worlds. The Global Handbook on Noncommunicable Diseases and Health Promotion is an important resource for understanding and approaching chronic illnesses and their prevention. This timely text balances theory and strategies to provide an integrative context for health-affecting behaviors regarding tobacco use, food choices, and physical activity.
Possible roles for hospitals, the workplace, government agencies, NGOs, and other institutions are analyzed, as is the potential for addressing larger underlying health factors e. Topics covered include:. As the authors of the Global Handbook on Noncommunicable Diseases and Health Promotion make abundantly clear, opportunities are as numerous as the issues, and researchers and graduate students in global public health, health promotion, and chronic disease epidemiology will find these chapters positive and realistic.

The novel coronavirus. Preventing and controlling the spread of disease is at the heart of much public health work. From the coronavirus-cased COVID to influenza, Lyme disease malaria and Ebola, outbreaks of infectious diseases can have an extraordinary impact on human health.
Communicable diseases spread from one person to another or from an animal to a person. The spread often happens via airborne viruses or bacteria, but also through blood or other bodily fluid. The terms infectious and contagious are also used to describe communicable disease. In this section, learn about coordinated efforts to combat a few of the most serious communicable diseases on a global level.

Communicable diseases are illnesses that can spread from person to person or from an animal to a person. These diseases can spread through a variety of ways, and common types of communicable diseases include foodborne illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, insect-borne illnesses and vaccine-preventable diseases. The epidemiology program also conducts communicable disease surveillance.
A non-communicable disease NCD is a disease that is not transmissible directly from one person to another. NCDs include Parkinson's disease , autoimmune diseases , strokes , most heart diseases , most cancers , diabetes , chronic kidney disease , osteoarthritis , osteoporosis , Alzheimer's disease , cataracts , and others. NCDs may be chronic or acute. Most are non- infectious , although there are some non-communicable infectious diseases, such as parasitic diseases in which the parasite's life cycle does not include direct host-to-host transmission. NCDs are the leading cause of death globally.
Food and Drug Recalls. Local health departments are required to report some 80 communicable diseases to the California Department of Public Health as part of the disease surveillance and investigation efforts. The diseases below are among them. Start Here.
