ABSTRACT

Progress Report 2002: Global Defence against the Infectious Disease Threat   [open html - 6KB]

"This report [...]profiles trends in the incidence, prevalence, and control of all infectious disease groups - high mortality, neglected (disability-causing), and epidemic-prone - of major public health importance with the exception of AIDS and the vaccine-preventable diseases of childhood. These diseases are the responsibilities of other departments within WHO and the joint United Nations programme, UNAIDS, in which WHO is a partner. Problems caused by the overlap of AIDS with other infectious diseases, both geographically and epidemiologically, are covered in the present report. Vaccine-preventable diseases of childhood are the subject of a recent report available from WHO."
