108,113–115 The classic triad of microbe, host, and environment is again exemplified. 4% of total DALYs. 34,117–119 For those caring for individual patients with infectious diseases, appropriate diagnosis and treatment are important considerations for the individual. Even more important is the consideration of approaches that will lead to diminished acquisition of infectious diseases. For some infectious agents, immunization holds promise, as witnessed by the successful global eradication of smallpox and the potential eradication of poliomyelitis.

May proposed that agent and number of hosts categorize diseases in the infectious cycle. Two-factor complexes consist of agents transmitted directly from person to person, such as poliovirus. Three-factor complexes involve transmission through a vector or invertebrate intermediate host—that is, a snail, mosquito, or other arthropod. Dengue and malaria, for instance, are transmitted from person to mosquito to person. For the purposes of this chapter, fourfactor complexes involve transmission between a nonhuman vertebrate and an arthropod, with humans being usually accidental hosts.
