Infectious Disease and Public Health
Infectious diseases come with extremely tough challenges to mitigate them and then finally get them under control. Bringing any such infectious disease under control involves a lot of decisions and cooperation between various branches of government and the health services.
Using the Internet, choose an infectious disease that was prevalent in the United States and had lasting consequences or select a disease from the following:
•West Nile Fever
Based on your research and understanding, create a 3 to 4-page report in a Microsoft Word document that includes the following:
•A brief description of your chosen infectious disease along with your reasons for choosing the disease.
•Information on the work conducted by government departments to mitigate the impact of your chosen infectious disease.
•Investigations, research studies, and other surveillance data analyses regarding your chosen infectious disease.
•Instances of the emergence and re-emergence of your chosen disease.
•A brief summary of the government’s findings and investigations about your chosen disease.
•Past, current, and ongoing research pertaining to your chosen disease.
Support your writing with relevant facts or figures and indicate your current knowledge of the infectious disease.
