Analysis of infectious morbidity in Russia in the past decade shows that there has been an overwhelming predominance in the incidence of infections, against which immunization measures are absent and the infections can be opposed only by nonspecific prevention, the basis for which is disinfectology prophylaxis. Disinfection must find its place in all types of infectious diseases, but it plays a particularly important role in the control of unvaccinated diseases, in which there is no immunological alternative. It is stated that all infections can and must be epidemiologically controlled by the concurrent use of immunological and non-immunological methods and agents be chosen and assessed on the principles of evidence-based medicine.
