Disease spread?


I have to give a 5 minute oral report on the topic of disease spread but the internet isnt giving much help because Ebola is coming up in all search results. I would like more details on what is currently being done to prevent disease spread. Some points that i already have are:

-Putting people through quarantine
-Getting vaccinated before entering certain countries
-People in contact with the disease have gloves, masks, etc.

Also, does anyone know of any organizations or fundraisers that anyone can participate in to help raise awareness and money for the research of disease?

Wow. This is a huge subject. But I think you are making it too difficult. Washing your hands with soap and water is probably the number 1 way to prevent the spread of disease.Try searching "preventing infectious disease" in your favorite search engine. I think you will be pleased with what you find.
