Epidemiology is the study of health in populations to understand the causes and patterns of health and illnesses. Epidemiologists often called “disease detectives” as epidemiologists search for the cause of disease, identify people most commonly being at risk, determinants, determine how to control or stop the spread or prevent it from happening again.

Change in health is constant in health care and navigating it requires the right level of health intelligence. We continue to curate our rich library data and scientific knowledge toward general population via scientific articles and news latters. This knowledge will help the readers about different health topics as being focused on everyone’s general health.

The Epidemiology program is research division of medical science, where research studies done and surveillance on health.

 

Like a crime scene investigator, disease detectives also begin by looking towards clues. Systematically gathering information, asking questions:

  1. The population who is being at sick?
  2. What are their symptoms?
  3. When were they being affected?
  4. Where could they have been exposed?

By using statistical analysis, this disease detective will answer to these public health questions to find out how a particular disease or health issue was introduced.

Disease detectives use what they learn during the investigation and make recommendations to control the spread or prevent a future occurrence.

So here is an attempt to bridge this gap in general population with endemic and epidemic diseases.
