Infectious Diseases of Ethiopia

Infectious Diseases of Ethiopia is one in a series of GIDEON ebooks which summarize the status of individual infectious diseases, in every country of the world. Data are based on the GIDEON web application ( which relies on standard text books, peer-review journals, Health Ministry reports and ProMED, supplemented by an ongoing search of the medical literature.

Chapters are arranged alphabetically, by disease name. Each chapter is divided into four sections:

1. Descriptive epidemiology
2. Summary of clinical features
3. Status of the disease in Ethiopia
4. References

A chapter outlining the routine vaccination schedule of Ethiopia follows the diseases chapters.

There are 354 generic infectious diseases in the world today. 228 of these are endemic, or potentially endemic, to Ethiopia. A number of other diseases are not relevant to Ethiopia and have not been included in this book.
