Communicable diseases spread from one person to another or from an animal to a person. The spread often happens via airborne viruses or bacteria, but also through blood or other bodily fluid. The terms infectious and contagious are also used to describe communicable disease.
As you will recall from the Module on Health Education , Advocacy and Community Mobilisation, health is defined as a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being and not the mere absence of disease. Diseases may be classified as communicable or non-communicable. Communicable diseases are caused by infectious agents that can be transmitted to other people from an infected person, animal or a source in the environment.

Cardiovascular diseases are those that affect the heart or blood vessels and include congenital heart disease , disorders of the peripheral vascular system, diseases of the aorta, endocarditis , orthostatic hypotension , hypertension , heart failure , arrhythmia , heart valve disease, coronary artery disease , and arteriosclerosis. The need for immediate action is critical to the future of the global economy. As many of those who die are of working age, the economic impact is enormous. As the populations of developing nations grow, they are affected by an ever-increasing share of this financial burden. By , the number of people over the age of 60 years worldwide will probably double, the authors explain. Combine this with greater urbanization and you have a steep rise in NCD rates. The numbers indicate that non-communicable diseases have the potential to not only bankrupt health systems but to also put a brake on the global economy.
Communicable Diseases Module: 1. Basic Concepts in the Transmission of Communicable Diseases
Prevalence of smoking, physical inactivity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and excess weight were studied and presented separately and aggregated in various combinations. The most frequent risk factor was physical inactivity Women were less active and thinner than men. More than half of the sample showed two or three risk factors The combination of physical inactivity and excess weight was observed in The accumulation of risk factors for CNCD is frequent in the study population and the identification of the most common combinations is essential for planning future interventions.

NCDs include Parkinson's disease , autoimmune diseases , strokes , most heart diseases , most cancers , diabetes , chronic kidney disease , osteoarthritis , osteoporosis , Alzheimer's disease , cataracts , and others. NCDs may be chronic or acute. Most are non- infectious , although there are some non-communicable infectious diseases, such as parasitic diseases in which the parasite's life cycle does not include direct host-to-host transmission. NCDs are the leading cause of death globally.
