Enteric Diseases

Module Description

Enteric diseases in the tropics substantially contribute to severe illness and death, particularly among children less than 5 years old. And, travelers and at-risk populations alike suffer near and longer-term consequences from it. In this module, we explore the nature and impact of enteric diseases in the tropics both for those who reside there and those who visit. Epidemiology, case management, and approaches to enteric risks are discussed.


Module Objectives

Upon completion of this module, participants should be better able to:

  1. Describe the host and how people become infected with the following enteric diseases: traveler's diarrhea, invasive enteric bacteria, cholera, amebiasis, giardiasis, and cryptosporidiosis
  2. Describe key features of case management (clinical syndrome, use of clinical laboratory services, therapy, recovery) of the following enteric diseases: traveler's diarrhea, invasive enteric bacteria, cholera, amebiasis, giardiasis, and cryptosporidiosis
  3. Apply knowledge of the epidemiology and case management to identify approaches to decreasing the impact of the following enteric diseases: traveler's diarrhea, invasive enteric bacteria, cholera, amebiasis, giardiasis, and cryptosporidiosis
  4. Integrate approaches to medical care delivery and health team functioning in the tropical environment to inform treatment decisions that respect patient and community values
