Communicable diseases
A disease that can be passed to a person from another person, animal or object is called a communicable disease.
Communicable diseases are also called infectious diseases.
Noncommunicable Diseases
Diseases that are not
transmitted by pathogens. These diseases are passed down from parents to children, or through unhealthy lifestyle choices such as smoking or poor nutrition.
These are also called chronic diseases.
Chronic Disease
Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and depression, cause more than half of all deaths worldwide.
Communicable diseases are spread by pathogens. They can be spread through the air, food, water or sometimes insects.
Chronic diseases are long-term diseases that affect people of all ages, both rich and poor, in every ethnic group. Chronic diseases are not usually spread by pathogens.
