Abstract

Infectious diseases can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Infectious diseases cut across all different fields of medicine and are thus of interest to the vast majority of medical and surgical specialties. In Spain, the different public health systems receive support from Microbiology laboratories; however, occasionally, some useful tools for the surveillance of infectious diseases are not clearly employed. It seems necessary to train primary care physicians to act as agents of the culture of knowledge and to establish practical mechanisms to integrate them into decision-making circuits in this area.
