Infectious diseases have plagued humankind since its antiquity. On the way of modern civilization of the species, in the realm of agrarian, industrial, or technological revolution, humankind experienced several such devastating waves in the form of Plague, Cholera, Spanish Flu, H1N1 Influenza, and many more. Every time the whole ecosystem was not at all prepared to combat against these unprecedented happenings, resulting in extreme human suffering with substantial death tolls. Like physical distress, human mind also responded to these cataclysmic events in a vulnerable way. Affliction of a deep emotional impact was inevitable especially to the people of the countries with limited resources including India. To manage these crises in an integrated and optimal way, these diathetic social and behavioral responses of the people should be addressed essentially. This is to supplement the physical intervention as a part of a multidisciplinary approach, to have a favorable outcome.
