Diseases

One of the essential functions of public health is preventing epidemics and the spread of disease. Reports of communicable diseases are collected, investigated, and analyzed to alert health care providers and the public of trends and unusual occurrences. When an outbreak occurs, appropriate action is taken to stop or control it.
