Infectious disease epidemiology is the study of the relationships among hosts and infection causative agents. Epidemiologists are focussed on virus spread or transmission, with or without disease. In order to model virus transmission, epidemiologists try to account for a variety of factors involving both host and virus.
Susceptibility to infectious disease results from several major corresponding factors, including socioeconomic, biological, and environmental factors. Major social processes such as globalization, unplanned rapid urbanization, widespread poverty, and inequalities lead to vulnerability of population subgroups.

Cancer epidemiology is the study of the factors, distribution and frequency of malignant disease in definite populations. The main objective is to define causative factors to formulate preventive strategies for control of the disease. Epidemiologic valuation provides the clinician with a quantification of cancer risk, outlines the basis for screening modalities for high-risk populations, and determines the efficacy of any preventive intervention.

Epidemiologic research in cardiometabolic diseases inspects causes of heart disease and metabolic disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and identifies preventive factors. Cardiometabolic complications are multifactorial diseases, and includes different factors like changes in living environments, diets, lifestyles, genetic, and epigenetic factor . Diabetes is one of the major causes of cardiometabolic complications. A common problem in diabetic patients is the maintenance of glycemic levels within a narrow range, meeting the recommendations of the Diabetes Control.

Molecular epidemiology emphasises on the contribution of probable genetic and environmental risk factors, recognised at the molecular level, distribution and prevention of disease across populations. This field has arose from the amalgamation of molecular biology into traditional epidemiological research. It improves our understanding of the pathogenesis of disease by identifying specific pathways, molecules and genes that effect the risk of developing disease. More broadly, it seeks to establish understanding of how the interactions between genetic traits and environmental exposures result in disease.

Genetic epidemiology represents amalgam of epidemiologic designs and statistical models that clearly consider both genetic and environmental risk factors for complex diseases, that is, those diseases that have some genetic component to their aetiology. Genetic epidemiology uses unique case-control, family, and population-based designs, and genotyping from numerous sources. Currently genetic epidemiology has been focused on the medical concept of personalised medicine.

Breast cancer is the commonest cause of death in women worldwide. It is increasing in areas that until recently had low rates of the disease. Many of the well-known risk factors are linked to oestrogens. Risk is increased by early menarche, late menopause. Both oral contraceptive pill consumption and hormonal therapy for menopause also enhance the risk of breast cancer. Each year, 40,000 women die of breast cancer, making it the second-leading cause of cancer deaths.

An aging-associated disease the disease that is regularly seen with increasing incidence with senescence. Essentially, aging-associated diseases are complications arising from senescence. Aging-associated diseases do not denote to age-specific diseases, such as the childhood diseases chicken pox and measles. Examples of aging-associated diseases are atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension . The commonness of all of these diseases increases exponentially with age.

Psychiatric epidemiology is a arena which studies the aetiology of mental disorders as well as conceptualization and prevalence of mental illness. It has roots in sociological studies of the early 20th century. Increasingly neuro scientific techniques like MRI are used to explore the mechanisms and exposures to risk factors impact psychological problems and explore the neuroanatomical substrate underlying psychiatric disorders

Epidemiology in oral health is a growing field of knowledge for scientific research. Moreover, it deepens discussions about oral pathologies and the association with bio-psychosocial factors. and periodontal disease are one of the major public health problem, therefore epidemiological studies are useful for identifying and observing their prevalence among different age and geographical groups, giving new treatment perspectives. It is understood that epidemiology can confer a projecting significance to clinical data, becoming very useful in executing preventive strategies to reduce the rate of dental problems.

Reproductive Epidemiology is the study of reproduction-related morbidity, mortality, and other health issues in males and females. It investigates the distribution and causes of reproductive diseases in human populations. Epidemiology helps to better understand the cause of a medical condition and how it can be prevented, or its commonness in the population. Reproductive topics include pubertal development, female reproductive cancers and sexually transmitted infections.

Maternal and child health is the health of the women during and post-partum, pregnancy, childbirth, and the post-partum period. It encompasses the health care dimensions of family planning, preconception, prenatal, and postnatal care experience, in most cases, and reduce maternal morbidity and mortality, in other cases. Maternal, foetal and neonatal mortality is more in low-income compared to high-income countries due to poor health systems access as well as utilization of health services.

Environmental epidemiology seeks to understand how physical, chemical, biologic, as well as, social and economic factors affect human health.. Environmental epidemiology studies external factors that affect the incidence, occurrence, and geographic range of health conditions. Environmental epidemiology identifies and computes exposures to environmental contaminants; conducts risk assessments and risk communication; provides scrutiny for adverse health effects; and provides health-based guidance on levels of exposure to such contaminants.

Air pollution is a major cause of disease and death universally. An estimated 4.2 million premature deaths globally are linked to ambient air pollution, primarily from heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and acute respiratory infections in children. Pollutants with the strongest evidence for public health concern, include particulate matter (PM), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulphur dioxide. In children and adults, both short- and long-term exposure to ambient air pollution can lead to condensed lung function, respiratory infections and asthma.

Obesity is a medical condition in which surplus body fat has deposited to an extent that it may have a harmful effect on health. People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, is defined as overweight. Obesity increases the possibility of various diseases and conditions, particularly cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and Depression.

Public health measures are non-medical interventions used to decrease the spread of disease. The emphasis of public health intervention is to improve health and quality of life through the prevention and treatment of disease. This can be done through observation of cases, and the promotion of healthy manners. Promotion of hand hygiene by hand washing, breastfeeding , administration of vaccines(antigenic material) to stimulate an individuals immune system to develop adaptive immunity to pathogen , limiting public gatherings and distribution of condoms to control the spread of sexually transmitted diseases(STD), are examples of common public health measures.
