INFECTIONS AND EPIDEMICS
Credit points: 15
This subject provides an introduction to microbial infections that can threaten human well being by causing either localized, epidemic or pandemic disease outbreaks. Selected microorganisms will be described and compared: the main focus is the natural habitat of the organisms (reservoirs of infection), the ways in which humans can encounter the organisms (routes of infection) and the strategies available at the individual, community and global levels to prevent disease and, in the diseased patient, to cure disease.
