Abstract: As environments are constantly changing, global diseases continue to emerge and transform. Further investigation is needed to understand the origin and patterns of such diseases. With our work in progress, we hope to discover any correlation between communicable and noncommunicable diseases throughout different countries. Epidemiological tools, such as ArcGIS and global data banks, were used to create geographical maps of diseases. Statistical analyses and quantitative models were then used to discover the significance of a diseases and/or between diseases. Our research can identify high prevalence's in certain areas which can then be used for implementing prevention methods for the improvement of global health.
