Centre for Infectious Diseases
Infections are major cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world even to-day and more so in the developing countries like ours. The change in the life style has been associated with many emerging and re-emerging infections. They pose a definite threat to the society in the form of morbidity, increased hospital stay, increased cost of treatment, loss of man hours and increased suffering..Development of drug resistance amongst the agents has compounded the problems. Early detection, prompt treatment, elimination of the source of infection and effective methods of control of spread of these infectionsare essentially required..
The centre for infectious diseases attempts to address all the infection related issues under one roof and this centre in collaboration with the centre for health awareness will attempt tolimit the spread of infection.
