Diseases template[edit]

This is supposed to be a diseases template (per name, title, category, etc.), but lately the emphasis seems to have shifted away from diseases to virology.

I think we should move it back to dealing with diseases (i.e. disease first), group items by disease characteristics (vector grouping is fine, but then group by disease type - e.g. viral hemoragic fever, remove taxonomic information on the causative organism - too much information).

If want to keep the focus on viruses, then the name, title, category, color scheme, etc. should be changed to make it a virology template (e.g. Zoonotic viruses that affect humans.) Zodon (talk) 00:53, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Since there are several templates with similar issues, posted at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine#Disease navigation templates - emphasise disease vs. causative agent, please discuss there. Thanks. Zodon (talk) 02:49, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
