Infectious Diseases Project
In this project, you will research an infectious disease that has had a large impact on the human population at some time, past or present. You will ALWAYS use YOUR OWN WORDS.
You will write a research paper (2-3 pages, double spaced), and submit it to your teacher with Turn-It-In.com, under the assignment title “Infectious Disease.”
Your paper is due: ____________________________________
Class ID: password:
Using the main points of your research, you will do a short presentation for your class. It is your choice as to power point, prezi, video, posters, etc. for your presentation. Presentations should be no longer than 4 minutes.
This project is to be completed individually. Please choose a pathogen/disease that no one else is studying.
Your disease:_____________________________________________________ ex: AIDS
Your pathogen:___________________________________________________ ex: HIV
? virus ? bacteria
Latin name:_______________________________________________________ ex: genus Lentivirus
Family of pathogen:______________________________________________ ex: family Retroviridae
What year was the disease discovered?
Is there anyone credited with discovery?
How many people are affected each year by this pathogen?
The largest outbreak of the disease in history—where, when, how many people were affected, how many people died?
Signs/symptoms of the disease, course of the disease (from start to finish, what happens to the person with the disease?), fatality rate (how many people usually die?)
How long do people typically suffer with symptoms of the disease?
What is the environment’s role in the disease?
How is the pathogen transmitted? (air/ water/ human contact)
Is there a vector (carrier) in nature? (ex: mosquito for malaria; infected poultry for Avian bird flu)
Is there more than 1 organism in the pathogen’s life cycle?
Do human living conditions contribute to the spread of the disease? (poverty/ malnutrition/ dense population)
Are there treatments? What are they?
Is there a vaccine? ? yes ? no
Does the pathogen have an antibiotic resistance (it is not killed with prescribed medicine)? ? yes ? no if yes, which medications?
What is the cost of typical treatment per person?
What is the cost of treatment globally per year? (how much do governments, the WHO, the CDC, and others spend to treat this disease?)
Compare the costs of prevention of the disease with costs of treatment of the disease (which costs more? Don’t forget to count days missed at work as part of the costs)
How can we avoid contracting the pathogen? (are there ways to change our behavior?)
If you were king or queen of the world (these need to be your ideas in your own words):
How would you change the environment to prevent the spread of this pathogen? (name at least 3 changes you would make)
What plan of attack would you use to eradicate (rid the world) this disease?
(outline at least 3 steps you would take, and make sure to take into account how much it would cost)
Your finished product must include:
-information relating to all the above categories and questions
-a micrograph (picture) of the pathogen
-a diagram of the pathogen life cycle
-a map of global locations where outbreaks have occurred
-SOURCES! SOURCES FOR EVERYTHING YOU USE-PICTURES, QUOTES, DATA, INFORMATION, LIFE CYCLE DIAGRAMS, NUMBERS, MAPS… (use APA style)
