Abstract

Epidemiology is the study of patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in a population. It provides critical support for public health by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive medicine. Epidemiology has helped develop methodology used in clinical research and public health studies. Major areas of epidemiological study include disease etiology, disease break, disease surveillance, and comparison of treatment effects such as in clinical trials.
