  • Expanded and improved English version of the German original
  • The subject is modern epidemiologic methods for infectious diseases, their origins and motivations, and their role and applications in public health

Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pro’s and con’s of vaccinating young girls against human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge and an understanding of all aspects of infectious diseases and their control.

The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspects of epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gap between scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspects of infectious diseases and their applications in public health.

The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectious diseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. It is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for experts that are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low.

The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious disease epidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years. Alexander Krämer is an internist and epidemiologist who co-founded the first School of Public Health in the German-speaking region of Europe at the University of Bielefeld. Mirjam Kretzschmar is a mathematician and epidemiologist with many contributions to mathematical modelling of infectious diseases and its applications for public health. Klaus Krickeberg is a mathematician with background in health information systems in developing countries.
