credit: CDC

The Vector-borne, Parasitic and Zoonotic Diseases subsection encompasses a range of diseases caused by parasitic organisms with diverse life histories. These diseases result from infection of a human host by bacterial, viral, unicellular or fungal organisms. These infections can arise from human to human transmission, animal to human transmission (zoonotic) as well as animal to human or human to human transmission by blood feeding arthropods (vector-borne).
