Fungal infections can be difficult to detect and as a result can lead to serious illness or death. PDPH takes a One Health approach to fungal diseases and recognizes the interconnectedness of humans, animals and the environment. Learn more about this transdisciplinary approach to health by visiting CDC's One Health Page. Fungal pathogens can cause infections in humans, animals and plants.
Fungal Disease Awareness Week
Every September the CDC and PDPH promotes Fungal Disease Awareness Week.
Fungal infections can often go undiagnosed, it’s important to “Think Fungus”.
In addition to Candida auris and A. fumigatus, the CDC also is raising awareness of other fungal diseases that may be found in this region including blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, and cryptococcal infections.
Check out CDC’s Fungal Disease Personal Stories for more information on these infections and how they have affected real people.
Check out the Changing Epidemiology of Fungal Pathogens webinar from Fungal Disease Awareness week.
