SESSIONS & TRACKS
Track 1: Tuberculosis
Globally, tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most leading causes of death; secondly to HIV/AIDS The bacteria that causing tuberculosis (TB) is Mycobacterium tuberculae .This bacteria may have development of resistance to the antimicrobial drugs that is used to cure the disease. Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) is TB that donot respond to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, the 2 most effective anti-TB drugs. Moreover drug-resistant TB, XDR-TB, is a form of multidrug-resistant TB with increasingly resistance to more anti-TB drugs that they responds to even fewer available medicines which is been reported in 117 countries worldwide.
Track 2: Neurological infections
Viral and immune mediated disorders of the nervous system are the most demanding neurological disorders. The most often neuroimmune disorder is multiple sclerosis; and HIV are the usual viral infection of the nervous system. In both these disorders commonly their is a loss of neurons progressively, resulting in cognitive and motor dysfunction and other associated effects.
Tract 3: Gynecological Infections
Many women attempts to find care for vulvar, vaginal, or pelvic complaints. Primary care providers should possess a clear understanding of the various diagnosis and treatment involving gynecologic infections. Mostly, many infections in the reproductive tract are sexually transmitted, whereas other common infections are an overgrowth of the normally present bacteria or yeast in the vagina significantly that may worsen the condition. Symptoms and signs that are resulting after infection helpful in determining the source of infection, but often a battery of tests should be performed to make a definite diagnosis of infection.
Tract 4: Acute respiratory tract infections
Acute respiratory infections (ARIs) are the most emerging cause of infectious disease–related morbidity, hospitalization, and morbidity among children around the world. Bacteria and viruses has been reported as the major causes of ARIs. In pediatrics, ARIs are caused mainly due to viruses; respiratory syncytial viruses (RSVs), Parainfluenza viruses, influenza virus A and B, and human Metapneumovirus (hMPV) are the most common viruses reported. However, primary infections with viral pathogens are leading to secondary acterial infections, and the most often found bacteria in ARIs include Streptococcus pneumonia and Haemophilus influenzae. These bacteria were almost resistant to the most commonly used antibiotics involving ARI treatment which is leading to high mortality rates, hospital durations, and health care–associated costs.
Tract 5: Rheumatic infections
Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that initiates with strep throat. It mostly affects connective tissue throughout the body, especially in the heart, joints, brain and skin. Although rheumatic fever can affect people of all ages, which is most commonly seen in children of age between 5 and 15 years. The most effective way to prevent rheumatic fever is to treat strep throat with antibiotics. Early diagnosis can prevent the condition been worsen.
Tract 6: Gastro-intestinal infections
Gastrointestinal infections are viral, bacterial or parasitic infections that cause gastroenteritis, an inflammation in gastrointestinal tract invoves both the stomach and the small intestine. Moreover, dehydration is the main danger of gastrointestinal infections, so rehydration is important, but most gastrointestinal infections are carried out without treatment and cured within a few days. However, in specific populations like (newborns/infants, immunocompromized patients or elderly populations), they are potentially serious. Rapid diagnosis, appropriate treatment and infection control measures are important as prophylaxis for control of disease progression.
Tract 7: Fungal skin infections
Most common fungal skin infections are caused by yeasts (such as Candida or Malassezia furfur) or dermatophytes, such as Epidermophyton, Microsporum, and Trichophyton. These fungi live only in the topmost layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) and do not penetrate deeper into tissues. Obese people are more likely to get these infections because of their excessive skinfolds, especially if the skin within a skinfold becomes irritated and broken down (intertrigo). Diabetic people also tend to be more sensitive to fungal infections.
Tract 8: HIV/AIDS
HIV and AIDS are the most adverse infectious disease affecting globally with no curability. Significantly, AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a syndrome caused by a virus called HIV (human immunodeficiency virus).It is a virus attacking immune cells called CD-4 cells, which are a subsidiary of T cells. HIV is found in almost all the tissues of the body but mainly transmitted through the body fluids of an infected person (semen, vaginal fluids, blood, and breast milk).
Tract 9: Ocular infections
These infections can affect almost all parts of the eye. Many viruses, bacteria can attack the surface or interior part of eye. This includes the clear front surface of the eye (cornea) and the thin, moist membrane lining the outer eye and inner eyelids (conjunctiva).most common infections are conjunctivitis, keratitis. Usually conjunctivitis can be caused by virus (adenovirus) and bacteria (Haemophilus influenzae, streptococcus pneumonia).
Tract 10: Streptococcal infections
These are the most emerging type of infections caused by streptococcus group of bacteria .They are mainly of group A and group B strep. 1: group A strep-they are often found on surface of skin and throat .The most common infections that are caused are cellulitis, pneumonia, throat infection, middle ear infection, sinusitis. 2: group B strep –they may cause urinary tract infections, skin infections, blood infections, bone infections but most of them are usually harmless.
Tract 11: Parasitic infections
These are the type of organisms that invade on living things to acquire food and place to live. These infections can be transmitted in many ways like food, water, soil, blood, and also transmitted by sexual contact. Infections that are caused by contaminated water is Giardia infection, cats transmit Toxoplasmas and malaria is the most frequent disease were most of the people get affected.
Tract 12: Leprosy infections
It is also known as Hansen's disease. These are chronic infections are caused by bacteria i.e, Mycobacterium leprae which affects eyes, nose, skin and nerves. In early it was considered as a dangerous disease which spreads easily but now treatment is done effectively and implementation of specific preventive measures resulted to eradicate in most of the countries.
Tract 13: Antibiotics
These are the effective antibacterial agents that fight against a wide range of microbes.They play a major role in preventions of many infections caused by bacteria but not effective on viruses few of them also has antiprotozoal activity. Antibiotics like Pencillins, sulphonamides, tetracyclines, vancomycin, bacitracin etc are effective against many infections like skin, bone, topical, gut infections .but they frequent use is limited because they cause resistant.
Tract 14: H1N1 Flu Virus (Swine flu)
It is an infection caused by one of many influenza viruses mainly influenza type A virus that effects pigs. This type of virus has the capability to mix with other strains and forms a new strain caused a pandemic. The most common effect is, it causes respiratory illness and is contagious and the other seasonal effects include Fever, body aches, loss of appetite, cough, headache, fatigue, irritated eyes, vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea.
Tract 15: Haematologic infections
These infections mainly effects the components of blood that producing haematologic manifestations like neoplasms, RBC abnormalities leading to anaemia, and changes in platelets, decrease the count of white blood cells causing differential diseases like thrombosis and hemorrage (by fungal and bacteria), leucopenia, sporotrichosis (fungus), infectious mononucleosis(virus).
