Epidemiology News

Epidemiology is the study of how diseases and health-related issues are distributed across populations and the factors that influence or determine their spread. It involves the analysis of data to identify risk factors and to formulate disease prevention strategies. Epidemiologists use this information to control health problems and improve public health through various methods, including surveillance, outbreak investigation, and intervention studies. The field plays a crucial role in public health decision-making by providing the scientific basis for policy development and health practices.
