The emergence of "nodding disease" : Aetiology The emergence of “new” diseases is a complicated issue.
Stalking the next epidemic It wasn't that long ago that most people believed infectious diseases originated in the will of the gods, or immoral behaviour. For the ancients, malaria hailed from the “rage of the dog star”. For 19th-century sanitarians, cholera arose from foul gases.
New model for epidemic contagion Jan. 11, 2012 — Humans are considered the hosts for spreading epidemics. The speed at which an epidemic spreads is now better understood thanks to a new model accounting for the provincial nature of human mobility, according to a study published in EPJ B.

Scientists call for global neglected disease database [ABUJA] A global database for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) "is feasible and should be expanded without delay", the developers of a first 'proof of concept' for such a tool have said. While efforts to eliminate NTDs have improved over the years, a georeferenced, global, open-access database is essential to boost the work, they said in a paper published last month (13 December) in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases. "There is a paucity of empirical estimates regarding the distribution of infection risk and burden of NTDs at the national, district or subdistrict level in most parts of the developing world," they wrote. Such information is essential for planning and implementing cost-effective, sustainable control interventions in areas where there is limited knowledge of disease distribution. To investigate the feasibility of a database, the authors focused on schistosomiasis — a chronic disease that affects more than 700 million people worldwide, according to the WHO.

What is Epi Info™? Physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, and other public health workers lacking a background in information technology often have a need for simple tools that allow the rapid creation of data collection instruments and data analysis, visualization, and reporting using epidemiologic methods.
On Thursday, December 18th, 2008, we gave a joint theater-style demonstration of synchronizing Epi Info™ Data using Mesh4x with the Division of Integrated Surveillance Systems and Services (NCPHI/DISSS) at US CDC.

The International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) has initiated EuroTravNet - the European Travel Medicine Network - to create a network of clinical experts in tropical and travel medicine to support detection, verification, assessment and communication of communicable diseases that can be associated with travelling and specifically with tropical diseases.
