Infection prevention and control is required to prevent the transmission of Contagious Diseases in all health care systems. These diseases are usually caused by bacteria or viruses and can be spread by human to human contact, animal to human contact, human contact with an infected surface, airborne transmission through small droplets of infectious agents suspended in the air and finally, by such common vehicles as water or food. Infection Control and Prevention demands a basic understanding of the epidemiology of diseases, risk factors that increase patient susceptibility to infection, and the practices, procedures and treatments that may result in infections. Recent techniques have proved that there is no disease that cannot be treated.

An Infectious disease whose occurrence has increased in the past years or a cause to increase is termed as emerging. These diseases include new infections, previously unrecognized infections and old infections reappearing due to antimicrobial resistance, public health issues and unhygienic conditions. Human infectious agents emerge and appear assignable to interaction of multiple advanced factors between the host and pathogen every driven by the requirement to secure the success of the species in dynamical environments. Adaptation by one partner to take advantage of new environments can typically stimulate the opposite to switch its features to require advantage of the change.

Bacterial Infections are treated by giving antibiotics to the patients. Medical diagnosis is the process of determining which disease or state explains a person's symptoms and signs. Laboratory tests may identify organisms directly for e.g., visually, using a microscope growing the organism in culture or indirectly for e.g., identifying antibodies to the organism. General types of tests include microscopy, culture and immunologic tests. Sub types of diagnoses include clinical, laboratory, radiology. Advanced methods have been implemented to diagnose the infection in any part of the body.

Healthcare-associated Infection (HAIs) is infections that patients get while receiving treatment for medical or surgical conditions, and many HAIs are preventable. Modern healthcare employs many types of invasive devices and procedures to treat patients and to help them recover. Infections can be associated with procedures (like surgery) and also the devices used in medical procedures, like catheters or ventilators. HAIs are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States and are associated with a substantial increase in health care costs each year. At any one time in the United States, 1 out of every 25 hospitalized patients are affected by an HAI.

Human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions that can be caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Sexually transmitted diseases(STD)/ sexually transmitted infections(STI) are the infections which are transmitted through sexual contact with an infected individual and also transmitted during vaginal or other types of sexual intercourse including oral and anal sex. Basic STI services are in disarray as programme resources which can be determined by decisions relating to a single disease existence in many Countries. Major HIV epidemics emerged from different types of infections that can be spread rapidly under some conditions of poor STI control and further weakening of STI control may well undermine other HIV prevention efforts.

Zoonosis / Animal infections are important hazard to human health since the emergence of human diseases is influenced by zoonotic pathogens. Infectious diseases affect livestock and also wild animals focusing on characterizing the conditions for the pathogen spread and maintenance in the present population. Scientist’s evaluation about the zoonotic diseases are that more than 8 out of every 12 known infectious diseases in humans are spread from faunas, and 4 out of every 5 new or emerging infectious diseases in people are spread from faunas. Yearly, calculated thousands of Americans gets sick from diseases spread between humans and faunas. By the cause of this, the national health agency works 24/7 to protect people from zoonotic diseases.

An antimicrobic that deactivates just about reflects all recognized unhealthful pathogens however not essentially all microbic forms. They’ll not be effective against microorganism spores, and conjointly the entire destruction of all sorts of life by chemical or physical suggestions. This is often associate absolute not a relative term. Though physical ways square measure usually superior to chemical medical care sterilization, it's not sensible to autoclave or subject several things to high heat, particularly if the things are often broken through perpetual exposure to heat. However, multiple investigators have incontrovertible the effectiveness of those disinfectants against yeasts (e.g., Candida), viruses (e.g. poliovirus), and mycobacteria (e.g., eubacterium tuberculosis), vegetative bacterium (e.g., Salmonella, Escherichia coli, vancomycin-resistant Enterococci, Listeria , methicillin-resistant coccus aureus), at exposure times of 30–60 seconds

Plant diseases have caused for severe losses to humans in different ways. Starvation and uprooting of families resulted from the Irish famine caused by potato late blight. A valued resource was lost with the virtual elimination of the American chestnut by chestnut blight. And direct economic loss such as the estimated one billion dollars lost in one year to American corn growers from southern corn leaf blight. Many plant diseases cause less dramatic losses annually throughout the world but collectively constitute sizable losses to farmers and can reduce the aesthetic values of landscape plants and home gardens.

Multiresistance is antimicrobial resistance which can shown by a species of microorganism to multiple antimicrobial drugs. The types most threatening to public health are MDR bacteria that can resist multiple antibiotics and the other types include MDR viruses, fungi, and Recognizing different degrees of MDR, the terms extensively drug resistant (XDR) and pandrug-resistant (PDR) have been introduced. Various microorganisms have survived for thousands of years by their ability to adapt to antimicrobial agents. It is necessary to develop new antibiotics over time since the selection of resistant bacteria which cannot be prevented completely.

Infections in a mother sometimes can be leads to birth defects in her unborn child. Maintaining proper hygiene and taking extra precautions can sometimes mean the difference between a healthy, happy baby and a life-threatening sickness. Use of irregular preventative treatment in pregnancy and using nets resulted in an estimated 94,000 new born deaths being averted between 2009 and 2012 in twenty five African countries. If these involvements had been applied to 80% of the at-risk population, it is estimated that 300,000 deaths could have been prevented.

Childhood infections / Pediatric infections are the infections which are caused in different age group children. Pediatric infections experts take care of the infections occurring in children and the treatment methods vary for children from adults. 11 million children deaths every year are attributable to six causes: neonatal infection, diarrhea, malaria, preterm delivery, pneumonia or lack of oxygen at birth. Some of the deaths occur from illnesses like malaria, measles or tetanus. Others result indirectly from marginalization, conflict and HIV/AIDS. Global burden of Pediatric mortality is increasing enormously every year.

Public awareness refers to the important role that community knowledge and enthusiasm has in building manageable societies. Delivering knowledge to remote communities requires strategies for effective communication regarding infections treatment and control and maintenance of good hygienic conditions by creating healthy environment and infection free world. The growing aging population, with associated rise in the incidence of chronic diseases have also led to an increased demand of infection control products. However, factors such as stringent regulatory requirements and the need to comply with them may restrain the growth of infection control market to a certain extent.

Diagnostic Pathology requires with examination of body tissues and their examination, Microscopical study of disease determination, abnormal tissue development, histopathology of lesions and sometimes post-mortem. It does research on critical diagnosis in surgical pathology. Many diseases are associated with bacterial infections. A pathogen predisposes to diseases states but may not cause disease. It may cause disease only in combinations (toxins exposure).Any disease causing gene that reduces survival and reproduction will eliminate itself over a number of generations therefore genetic diseases are self-extinguishing. For example, genes that encode sickle cell anaemia are maintained and persist down generations, as these genes protect against malaria, which kills millions worldwide every year. About 70% deaths in US results from chronic diseases and the treatment accounting 75% of all US healthcare costs (amounting to $ 1.7 trillion in 2009).

One of the prime effective ways in which we've got to protect ourselves from ill health is  personal hygiene. This suggests wash your hands especially, however additionally your body. It means that being careful to not cough or sneeze on others, cleansing things that you simply bit if you're unwell, golf stroke things like tissues into a bin, associate degree victimisation protection after you may be in danger of catching an infection. People should know about guidelines and recommendations related to infection prevention. HAIs are currently one of the top ten leading causes of death in the United States. Healthcare professionals have an important role in HAI prevention. Infection control measures are a set of standard recommendations that can be used to reduce the risk of transmission of infectious agents from body fluids that contain infectious agents.

Any discussion of the business case for infection control (IC) must start by acknowledging that the single most important reason for IC is to prevent morbidity and mortality associated with nosocomial infections. Each year, hundreds and thousands of Americans suffer the consequences of nosocomial infections which can be ranging from the inconvenience of taking extra medications to death. Beyond the human cost is the important economic burden that these infections place on society, including not only the obvious increase in health care resource use but also indirect costs associated with the loss of productivity of patients and their caregivers.
