When the humanitarian disaster in Haiti began to unfold, we accelerated development of a comprehensive book on the diseases of that country. This will be one in a series of ebooks which present the status of all infectious diseases…in all individual countries. This ebook, Infectious Diseases of Haiti, will be offered free of charge to all health professionals concerned with the current disaster.
There are 347 forms of human infectious disease in the world today – and 198 of these (more than half) are known to occur in Haiti. Sadly, one of the “side effects” of living in a poor and disaster-ridden economy is a lack of useful facts regarding the local status of individual diseases. GIDEON (Global Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology Online Network) is a Web-based application which follows diseases – both on a global level and within each country. Data are updated daily and are derived from all relevant journals, websites, Health Ministry reports and publications of the World Health Organization. The electronic book (ebook) is generated from information in the GIDEON database, and will serve as the first comprehensive review of infectious diseases in Haiti. Similar ebooks are now available by country and disease.
