Session and Tracks

Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases

Emerging infectious diseases are induced by various microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread from one person to another. Infectious Disease Epidemiology helps us to understand the correlations of contaminating agents, their hosts, vectors and environment. This information helps in understanding of how disease patterns vary among populations and how that impacts development of advanced therapies and treatment interventions.

 

Epidemiology and Public Health

Public health is concerned with protecting the health of entire populations. These populations can be as small as a local neighborhood, or as big as an entire country or region of the world. Public Health is a part of sciences, skills and convictions that is focused on the preservation. In descriptive epidemiology, scientists do use of available data to identify health related problems. Epidemiology and Demography 

 

Epidemiology and Nutrition

Nutritional epidemiology is a relatively new field of medical research that studies the relationship between nutrition and health. Diet and physical activity are difficult to measure accurately, which may partly explain why nutrition has received less attention than other risk factors for disease in epidemiology.

Adolescent Health

Adolescents ages 10 to 19 and young adults from 20 to 24 make up 39 percent of the number of population in all over the world. Research has demonstrated that adolescents programs can decrease the predominance of health risk among young people and positively effect on academic performance. Schools additionally assume a basic part in advancing the health care and security of young people and helping them build up lifelong healthy behaviors. The behavioral examples built up amid these developmental periods help decide youngsters current health status and their risk of chronic diseases and infections in adulthood. Since they are in developmental transition, adolescents and young adults grown-ups are especially sensitive to natural that is, logical or encompassing impacts. Natural variables, including family, peer gathering, school, neighborhood, approaches, and societal signs, can either support or challenge young adult’s wellbeing or prosperity. Addressing to the constructive advancement of young people encourages their adoption of healthy behaviours and helps to develop a healthy and productive life. The Adolescent Health Initiative endeavors to transform the health care and to optimize adolescent and young adult health.

 

Cardiovascular Epidemiology

Cardiovascular epidemiology is the field which deals with heart related epidemiology. This field is the interdisciplinary field where the trainees in epidemiology were encouraged to lead roles related to cardiovascular diseases. The mortality rate is increasing around the world due to cardiovascular diseases. And field focuses on treatment, management of the cardiovascular health of the people.

  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Multidisciplinary workforce in cardiovascular epidemiology
  • Recognition of the social determinants of cardiovascular health and disease prevention of CVD
  • Recognition of the essential role of community-based approaches to cardiovascular health

Non-Communicable Diseases

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, tend to be of long duration and are the result of a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental and behaviors factors.

The main types of NCDs are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and stroke), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes.

NCDs disproportionately affect people in low- and middle-income countries where more than three quarters of global NCD deaths – 32million – occur.

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Stroke

 

Sexually transmitted diseases

Sexually transmitted Infections (STI), also referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STD), are infections that are commonly spread by sexual activity, especially vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex. Many times STIs initially do not cause symptoms. This results in a greater risk of passing the disease on to others. Symptoms and signs of disease may include vaginal discharge, penile discharge, ulcers on or around the genitals, and pelvic pain. STIs can be transmitted to an infant before or during childbirth and may result in poor outcomes for the baby. Some STIs may cause problems with the ability to get pregnant.

  • HIV
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis

 

Epidemiology and tuberculosis

Study of the epidemiology of tuberculosis has been greatly assisted by the availability of a test for infection, the tuberculin test, that enables one to distinguish those who are infected but without disease from those who are uninfected. The principal risk for acquiring infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is breathing. Tuberculosis due to reactivation of latent bacilli is presumed to result from a failure in immune surveillance. 

Molecular Epidemiology and Injury

Molecular epidemiology is a branch of epidemiology and medical science that focuses on the contribution of potential genetic and environmental risk factors, identified at the molecular level, to the etiology, distribution and prevention of disease within families and across populations. This field has emerged from the integration of molecular biology into traditional epidemiological research. Injury epidemiology is the characterization of injury occurrence, the identification of risk factors and the strength of effect of those factors, as well as potentially protective factors related to the development and evaluation of injury prevention strategies and programs. Injuries can occur in every environment from homes to the workplace, recreational settings including sports settings, and to transportation settings between these environments.

 

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

This is the branch of epidemiology which is dealing with the discovery of the environmental exposures that protect against injuries, illnesses, disabilities, and identification of public health and health care actions to prevent the risks associated with harmful exposures.

 

Epidemiology and Obesity

Obesity has been observed throughout human history. Many early depictions of the human form in art and sculpture appear obese. However, it was not until the 20th century that obesity became common so much so that, in 1997, the World Health Organization (WHO) formally recognized obesity as a global epidemic. Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2, and in June 2013 the American Medical Association classified it as a disease, with much controversy.

  • Prevalence of childhood obesity
  • Health Examination Study
  • Nutrition Examination Study

In epidemiology, a risk factor is a variable associated with an increased risk of disease or infection. When evidence is found the term determinant is used as a variable associated with either increased or decreased risk.

 

Epidemiology and cancer

The epidemiology of cancer is the study of the factors affecting cancer, as a way to infer possible trends and causes. The study of cancer epidemiology uses epidemiological methods to find the cause of cancer and to identify and develop improved treatments.

 

 

COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a group of progressive lung diseases. The most common are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Many people with COPD have both of these conditions. Emphysema slowly destroys air sacs in your lungs, which interferes with outward air flow. Bronchitis causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes, which allows mucus to build up. COPD makes it harder to breathe. Symptoms may be mild at first, beginning with coughing and shortness of breath. As it progresses, it can become increasingly difficult to breathe. You may experience wheezing and tightness in the chest. Some people with COPD have exacerbations, or flare-ups of severe symptoms .The top cause of COPD is smoking. Long-term exposure to chemical irritants can also lead to COPD. It’s a disease that takes a long time to develop.
