Summary
"The Infectious Diseases of Haiti is one in a series of GIDEON e-books which summarize the status of individual infectious diseases, in every country of the world. Data are based on the GIDEON database (www.gideononline.com) which relies on standard text books, peer-review journals, Health Ministry reports and ProMED, supplemented by an ongoing search of the medical literature. Chapters are arranged alphabetically, by disease name. Each section is divided into four sections: 1. Descriptive epidemiology; 2. Summary of clinical features; 3. Status of the disease in Haiti ; 4. References. The initial items in the first section, Descriptive epidemiology, are defined as follows: Agent: Classification (e.g., virus, parasite) and taxonomic designation; Reservoir: Any animal, arthropod, plant, soil or substance in which an infectious agent normally lives and multiplies, on which it depends primarily for survival, and where it reproduces itself in such a manner that it can be transmitted to a susceptible host; Vector: An arthropod or other living carrier which transports an infectious agent from an infected organism or reservoir to a susceptible individual or immediate surroundings; Vehicle: The mode of transmission for an infectious agent. This generally implies a passive and inanimate (i.e., non-vector) mode. There are 347 generic infectious diseases in the world today. 198 of these are endemic, or potentially endemic, to Haiti. A number of other diseases are not relevant to Haiti and have not been included in this book. In addition to endemic diseases, we have included all published data regarding imported diseases and infection among expatriates from this country. The availability and quality of literature regarding specific infectious diseases varies from country to country. As such, you may find that many of the sections in this book are limited to a general discussion of the disease itself: with no data regarding the country under review. Since this book focuses on Geographic Medicine, it does not include detailed information on diagnostic testing, pathogenesis, therapy or molecular biology. Many of the diseases are generic. For example, such designations as Pneumonia bacterial and Urinary tract infection include a number of individual diseases. These appear under the subheading, Synonyms, listed under each disease. The entire book will be updated on a regular basis."
