Disease Prevention and Control
A disease is an abnormal condition that affects the body of an organism.
It is often construed as a medical condition associated with specific symptoms and signs.
It may be caused by factors originally from an external source, such as infectious disease.
“Disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes pain, dysfunction, distress, soci al problems, or death to the person afflicted, or similar problems for those in contact with the person.
2 KINDS OF DISEASES
a disease that can be communicated from one person to another is a medical condition or disease, which by definition is non-infectious and non-transmissible among people.
NCDs may be chronic diseases of long duration and slow progression, or they may result in more rapid death such as some types of sudden stroke.
