A non-communicable disease (NCD) is a disease that is not transmissible directly from one person to another

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

Epidemiology is defined as the study of the factors determining the occurrence of diseases in human . In the application and discussion of epidemiologic principles, standard definitions and terminology have been widely accepted (7,8).

Epidemiology is defined as the study of the factors determining the occurrence of diseases in human populations. It is an indispensable tool for characterizing infectious disease occurrences in medical institutions, communities, regions, or industry, and for determining the exposure-disease relationship in humans and the modes of acquisition and spread that are critical for treatment, control, and prevention of these infectious disease occurrences. The definitions of some commonly used terms are outlined in this section

Communicable diseases are diseases that are as a result of the causative organism spreading from one person to another or from animals to people. They are among the major causes of illnesses in Kenya and the entire Africa.

Communicable diseases are diseases that are as a result of the causative organism spreading from one person to another or from animals to people. These diseases affect people of all ages but more so children due to their exposure to environmental conditions that support the spread. Communicable diseases are preventable base on interventions placed on various levels of transmission of the disease.

disease Environment Definition of communicable diseases  A communicable disease is an illness due to a specific infectious (biological) agent or its toxic products capable of being directly or indirectly transmitted from man to man, from animal to man, from animal to animal, or from the environment (through air, water, food, et. to man. Importance of Studying Communicable Diseases Epidemiology  Changes of the pattern of infectious diseases  Discovery of new infections  The possibility that some chronic diseases have an infective origin.

Infections and infectious diseases are a great burden on many societies, including the countries in the WHO European region. To reduce that burden an integrated approach is required, combining health promotion, disease prevention and patient treatment. The prerequisite for success in this fight is the participation of all health care professionals. Nurses and midwives, as major frontline providers of care, are in a position to contribute significantly to reducing the burden.

Infectious disease epidemiology (which includes the epidemiology of viruses) is the study of the complex relationships among hosts and infectious agents. Epidemiologists are interested in virus spread or transmission, with or without disease. Viral epidemiologists try to predict the potential for development of epidemics, and a very important part of their job is to define the kinds of interventions that could contain a virus outbreak. Veterinarians are often concerned with threats to food animals (how a disease of food animals might be spread, or be introduced into a disease-free area).
