Learn About Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases are defined as disorders caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi that can be spread directly or indirectly from a person to person.

Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They are mostly harmless or helpful. However under certain conditions, some organisms may cause disease and death if not treated.
