Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article aims to disseminate relevant concepts in the design of health interventions. Taking into account that the epidemiological evidence and the strength of the available instruments or technological control composition are fundamental for the determination of a scale of public health objectives: extinction, eradication, elimination, control or reduction of levels of exposure or control of natural transmission, reduction or prevention of the occurrence of epidemics, limitation of damage and reduction of mortality. The limiting factor for achieving these objectives must be given by the epidemiology of the disease, which may be determined by inaccessibility or exceptional patterns of transmission, operational difficulties, and insufficient means, but not by the inapplicability of existing knowledge.
