Welcome to the Infectious Disease Special Interest Group

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases of animals that can cause disease when transmitted to humans. (http://www.who.int/topics/infectious_diseases/en/)
