The word epidemiology comes from the Greek word Epi, meaning "on or upon," demos, meaning "people," and logos, meaning "the study of”. Epidemiology is: a) a quantitative discipline built on a working knowledge of probability, statistics, and sound research methods; b) a method of causal reasoning based on developing and testing hypotheses pertaining to occurrence and prevention of morbidity and mortality; and c) a tool for public health action to promote and protect the public's health.

It is the key quantitative discipline that underpins public health, which is often defined as the organised efforts of society to prevent disease and to promote health. Public Health is a blend of sciences, skills and convictions that is focused on the preservation and improvement of the health of all people through preventive (rather than curative) measures. In descriptive epidemiology, scientists make use of available data to identify health problems. In analytical epidemiology, scientists assess hypotheses about the association of risk factors with these problems. Epidemiology serves as the quantitative foundation for public health interventions and is a critical science for evidence-based medicine. The focus of the Division of Epidemiology, in the Department of Population Health, is to gain new understanding of the inter-relationship of genetic and environmental factors impacting on human health, providing the scientific basis for translation of this knowledge to public health action.

Since 1990, maternal death worldwide have dropped by 45 percent, however consistently around 800 women die from preventable makes related pregnancy and labor. All of these deaths happen in low-pay settings subsequently of condition that includes hypertension, infection, high blood pressure, and complications during delivery. Maternal health is closely connected to infant survival. While great steps have been made in reducing global child mortality, newborns and now represent 44 percent of all child deaths. Every year, 2.9 million babies needlessly die within their first month and an extra 2.6 million are stillborn. The main cause, which are preventable and treatable, are confusions because of rashness, intricacies amid conveyance, and contamination. National organizations recognize the need to accelerate the development, delivery and impact at scale of new approaches to deal with need worldwide medical issues.

Adolescents ages 10 to 19 and young adults from 20 to 24 make up 39 percent of the number of population in all over the world. Research has demonstrated that adolescents programs can decrease the predominance of health risk among young people and positively effect on academic performance. Schools additionally assume a basic part in advancing the health care and security of young people and helping them build up lifelong healthy behaviors. The behavioral examples built up amid these developmental periods help decide youngsters current health status and their risk of chronic diseases and infections in adulthood. Since they are in developmental transition, adolescents and young adults grown-ups are especially sensitive to natural that is, logical or encompassing impacts. Natural variables, including family, peer gathering, school, neighborhood, approaches, and societal signs, can either support or challenge young adult’s wellbeing or prosperity. Addressing to the constructive advancement of young people encourages their adoption of healthy behaviors and helps to develop a healthy and productive life. The Adolescent Health Initiative endeavors to transform the health care and to optimize adolescent and young adult health.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) are also referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STI) and venereal diseases (VD) and these are the infections that are passed from person to person through sexual contact. According to the CDC, nearly 19 million men and women are infected each year in the United States. Most of the Sexually transmitted diseases do not cause symptoms initially. Penile discharges, pelvic pain, ulcers on or around the genitals, vaginal discharge are some of the signs and symptoms of the disease. Depending on the type of disease, these STDs can be spread through any type of sexual activity.

Cancer epidemiology is the branch of epidemiology which is dealing with the disease cancer. Epidemiology is concerned with events that occur in populations: the primary units of concern are groups of people, not separate individuals. In fact, cancer epidemiological studies may focus on precursors of cancer. Observational epidemiological studies that show associations between risk factors and specific cancers mostly serve to generate hypotheses about potential interventions that could reduce cancer incidence or morbidity. Randomized controlled trials then test whether hypotheses generated by epidemiological studies and laboratory research actually result in reduced cancer incidence and mortality. In many cases, findings from observational epidemiological studies are not confirmed by randomized controlled trials. Some cancer researchers have argued that negative cancer clinical trials lack sufficient statistical power to discover a benefit to treatment. This may be due to fewer patients enrolled in the study than originally planned.

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. As per The World Health Organization (WHO) food borne and water borne diseases cause 2.2 million people deaths around the world. Foodborne diseases outbreaks have devastating health and economic consequences in both developed and developing countries.

Infectious Disease Epidemiology offers us information to understand the relations of infectious agents, their hosts, vectors and environment. This information assists in understanding of how disease patterns differ among populations and how that impacts development of new prevention and treatment interventions.

Diabetes is a group of disorders characterized by chronic high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) because of the body's inability to deliver any or enough insulin to control high glucose levels. There are two fundamental types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, which frequently happens in kids or teenagers, is caused by the body's failure to make insulin or type 2 diabetes, which happens because of the body's inability to respond properly to insulin. Type 2 diabetes is predominantly analyzed after the age of forty, be that as it may, it is presently being found in all age ranges, including kids and adolescents. There are many hazard factors for type 2 diabetes, for example, age, race, pregnancy, stress, certain prescriptions, hereditary qualities or family history, elevated cholesterol and weight. In any case, the absolute best indicator of type 2 diabetes is overweight or Obesity. Just about 90% of individuals living with type 2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity.

Antibiotics and similar drugs, together called antimicrobial agents, have been used for the last 70 years to treat patients who have infectious diseases. These drugs are helping to cure illness and death from infectious diseases. However, these drugs have been implemented so widely and for so long to kill infectious organisms. Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become arrested with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections.

Mental disorders are health conditions that are characterized by changes in state of mind, mood and behavior that are related with pain or potentially disabled working. Mental illness is the term that refers by largely to all diagnosable mental disorders. Mental disorders add to a large group of issues that may incorporate disability, death. Mental disorders are among the most well-known reasons for disability. The subsequent diseases burden of mental illness is among the highest of all diseases. In any given year, an expected 18.1% (43.6 million) of U.S. adults ages 18 years or more suffered from mental illness and 4.2% (9.8 million) of European suffered from a seriously debilitating mental illness. Neuropsychiatric disorders are the main source of disability in the Asian countries, representing 18.7% of all years of life lost to inability and pre mature mortality. Besides, suicide is the tenth driving reason for death in the worldwide, representing the deaths of around 43,000 in 2014.

Social epidemiology is a branch of epidemiology that focuses particularly on the effects of social-structural factors on states of health. Social epidemiology assumes that the distribution of advantages and disadvantages in a society reflects the distribution of health and disease. It proposes to identify societal characteristics that affect the pattern of disease and health distribution in a society and to understand its mechanisms. The central and initial question of social epidemiology to be answered is what effect do social factors have on individual and population health.
