Emerging infectious diseases (In short, EID)

"Emerging infectious diseases" refers to diseases of infectious origin whose incidence in humans has either increased within the past two decades or threatens to increase in the near future.

Strategies that need to be implemented for Coping with EIDs in Nepal.

Surveillance: Detect, promptly investigate, and monitor emerging pathogens, the disease they cause, and the factors influencing their emergence

Applied research: Integrate laboratory science and epidemiology to optimize public health practices.

Prevention and control: Enhance communication of public health information about emerging diseases and ensure rapid implementation of preventable strategies.

Infrastructure: Strengthen village, district and regional level public health infrastructure to support surveillance and implement prevention and control measures.
