Department of Epidemiology

Introduction

The Department of Epidemiology was established along with the formation of the Institute in 1932.The Department is the First Institute/College having a separate Epidemiology Department in India.

The department has played significant role in the development of the discipline of epidemiology and of community health in broader sense. The department has been pioneer in carrying out General Health Survey in the population of its rural field practice area in Singur,Hooghly District West Bengal .The department had been involved in identifying the problem of Arsenicosis as a major public health problem in the country. The department has been involved in carrying out many surveys. Lal RB, Roy SC had conducted investigation of epidemic dropsy in 1930.Work was done on chronic arsenic toxicity from drinking water from tubewells in rural West Bengal in 1980s. The Sonagachi Project launched in 1992 by the Dept. in Sonagachi red light area of Kolkata, has evolved into a multi-faceted community effort to empower sex workers (particularly women) in ways that go beyond HIV prevention. The Sonagachi Project has been identified as a World Health Organization (WHO) model.

The department has been the nodal department in monitoring and supervision of HIV sentinel surveillance in West Bengal and North Eastern States of India. It is also the nodal dept. for IDSP (TOT) and Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) in North Eastern States and West Bengal.

The Department practices epidemiology as a broad scientific discipline, addressing the occurrence of disease and the distribution of health status in populations. By integrating causal concepts at the molecular, cellular, clinical, and social-environmental levels, our faculty work to maintain an intellectual environment that facilitates the integration of biological, social, and analytic approaches. Within such an environment, faculty and students are able to develop the breadth of knowledge necessary to appreciate fully the complexities of the biosocial systems that we seek to understand and modify. The department strives to   better understand the burden and causes of health problems in human populations, and to make changes that decrease risk and improve health.

The Mission of the Department of Epidemiology at AIIH&PH   is to contribute to the reduction of the disease burden in human populations through research, education, and service. The research mission is met by study into the risk of disease associated with inherent, acquired, social, or environmental factors, and the development and application of methods to alleviate that risk. These methods range from primary prevention through service provision to modification of social systems. Faculty and students pursue this research mission through research projects conducted both by individuals and by multi-disciplinary teams.

The educational mission includes the training of students to generate and interpret epidemiologic information, to synthesize it with other information, and to apply it to reduction of the disease burden. Graduates from the Department’s research and training programs are prepared to develop their careers as independent researchers and health managers, and all Departmental graduates are prepared to take up leadership positions in public and private agencies involved with health care or research.
