Prevention is the key to fighting many infectious diseases. Part of preventing the spread of an infectious disease includes proper handwashing techniques; taking certain precautions, depending on the disease; following the nationally recommended immunization schedule for children and adults, and taking medications correctly.

Even with proper prevention, sometimes a disease is unavoidable. Some reasons include evolution of drug-resistant strains of a disease; changes in a person's environment; increased travel; inappropriate use of prescription drugs; and lack of attention to proper personal hygiene.
