Communicable diseases are severe infectious diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, and fungi, which are transmitted from a person to a person or from an animal to a person by airborne droplets, through physical contact, body fluids (saliva, blood, tears, etc.) or are sexually transmitted.

Severe communicable diseases include tuberculosis, HIV / AIDS, malaria, viral hepatitis, and meningitis. Each of these diseases is fatal if untreated. Today, the world has recorded critical levels of incidences and mortality from these diseases: these levels are so high that WHO recognized it as a state of epidemic in the world. Controlling these diseases is recognized as one of WHO's public health top priorities, but each of these pathologies still results in thousands of deaths annually.

The search for new, more effective ways to control severe communicable diseases is the top priority of INCURE.
