- Suppression (suspension of infection): In a certain area, there is no new infection with a certain pathogen, and the risk of recovery is minimal.
- Suppression as a Public Health Problem: Achieving the global and regional goals set by WHO for each disease
- Control: New infection, morbidity, and mortality of the disease are reduced to locally acceptable levels.
