Epidemiology Systems Approach




The usage of the concept of a "system" here refers to the assembly of factors connected with each other in some form of coherent relationship; all working towards the same or common goal. For example, an epidemiologic study of a specific disease or health entity must begin with the task of identifying and defining the various states of health (or disease), the determinants that affect the system under study, the relationships amongst the variables as these interact to affect the outcome of the specific condition under study etc.
