Infections and Their Routes of Transmission

Infections are transmitted by five main potential routes into your body: respiratory; insect vectors; sexual; food and drink; touch. Some diseases use only one route, some use more than one. 

This series will consider routes of transmission, and how predicting epidemics and controlling infections depends on understanding their routes of transmission.

The final lecture of this season is a stand-alone on the future of health globally.
