What are infectious diseases?

Infectious diseases are caused by organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. At The Wesley Hospital, our specialist infectious disease doctors often work with other specialist doctors to prevent infections in people with lowered immune systems. They also treat a wide range of conditions, from paediatric diseases to tropical and respiratory infections, including:

  • Blood stream infections.
  • Bone and joint infections.
  • Pneumonia and other respiratory infections.
  • Recurrent skin and soft tissue infections.
  • Travel-related infections or exposures.
  • Tropical diseases (eg malaria, dengue fever).
