Infectious diseases are the consequence of complex interactions between microbiological agents (known as pathogens), physical and social environments, and human hosts. This subject examines how controlling communicable disease of public health importance requires a wide variety of strategies to address these interactions. The subject deals with the principles and practice of public health surveillance, disease outbreak recognition and responses, immunisation, and a variety of other disease control strategies relevant to Australia as well as to many low- and middle-income countries.
