Global Eradication of Diseases
Eradication is that the reduction of infectious disease's prevalence among the international host population to zero. Selection of infectious diseases for eradication is based on rigorous criteria, as each biological and technical characteristic determine whether a pathogenic organism is (at least potentially) eradicable. Smallpox and rinderpest are the diseases eradicated. Choice of infectious diseases for wipe-out depends on rigorous criteria.
