Among many infectious diseases prevalent in the world, a few are emerging and emerging infectious diseases, which include the influenza virus. There are some other infections, which are spread throughout the world causing pandemics like the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Human parasitic infectious diseases assume greater significance in public health perspective, as they contribute to majority of the morbidity especially in the developing and economically weak nations usually affecting the pediatric age and the young adults, as well as immunocompromised individuals.
