“The availability of resources, leadership and organizational support are key elements to further improve infection prevention and control.”

Infectious diseases are those caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi, and can be transmitted, directly or indirectly, from one person to another, or by zoonoses (transmitted from animals to man).
These diseases cause more than a quarter of deaths globally. HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, diarrhea, malaria, measles and pneumonia account for 90% of these deaths. mh/pll/oda/joe
