Listing of diseases that are considered incurable, including infectious and non-infectious, neoplastic, autoimmune, genetic or metabolic diseases for which there is currently no known cure.
Although many incurable diseases are often fatal, there are also many incurable conditions that a person can live with all their life.
The eradication of a disease is seen as permanent and global. The elimination of a disease is a benefit that is limited to a specific geographic location.
Our incomplete list of incurable diseases also includes rare diseases, which are often genetic in nature. Incurable diseases are considered to be both infectious and non-infectious, neoplastic, autoimmune, genetic or metabolic diseases for which there is currently no known cure.
Incurable diseases include conditions such as late-stage cancer, AIDS, and some forms of heart disease. Although many incurable diseases are often fatal, there are also many incurable conditions that a person can live with all their life.
Conditions like diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of dementia cannot be “cured”, but they can be treated. In the past, medical treatment was all about treating the disease, but today many doctors have shifted their focus to the patient, not just the disease.
Eradication of Disease
The ultimate goal in the fight against disease is to eradicate it.
In theory, many diseases could be eradicated, in practice only a handful of diseases meet the criteria that current knowledge, institutions and technology allow them to be eradicated.
The eradication of a disease is seen as permanent and global, while the eradication of a disease is seen as an achievement limited to a specific geographic location.
