Every 7 out of 10 individuals are affected by chronic diseases. Epidemiology is the study of the transmission of various diseases, studying its causes, insights and wellbeing aspects in a particular population. Epidemiology of chronic diseases includes both biological and social consequences on the vulnerability of the diseases, the genetic influence on the risk factors, etc. Although epidemiology is widely accepted in health care programs, its part in chronic disease is not yet reached well. This is due to the lack of understanding of basic chronic disease epidemiology functions. Epidemiology helps in the management of individuals already affected by diseases. The information obtained through these studies is used in evaluating and planning strategies to prevent and control diseases.
