Community immunology

Similar to classical immunology being the study of those factors within the (human) organism that enhance or threaten susceptibility to pathogens, we can now define "Community immunology" as:

The science and art to identify and modify factors in social environments that are pathogenic and/or salutogenic.

Community immunology is thus particularly interested in the study of social determinants of health, and in developing methods and strategies to modify such determinants for the benefit of social health.
