Overview of diseases

Flu, measles, HIV/AIDS and borreliosis are communicable or infectious diseases, while diabetes, asthma and cardivascular disease are noncommunicable. Here you can find out more about various diseases.

Below you’ll find an overview of the diseases we focus on. We concentrate on the areas set down by the political authorities, so there are many diseases you won’t find here.

There are systematic descriptions of each major infectious disease with information on its transmission path, symptoms, distribution, frequency and prevention. For the other diseases (for example noncommunicable, mental or rare diseases) we explain the general situation and refer to the concrete measures taken by the federal authorities.

You’ll find everything related to preventive and prophylactic healthcare in the Healthy Living section.
