A syndemic is a situation in which two or more interrelated biological factors work together to make a disease or health crisis worse.  The term syndemic is used among medical and anthropological experts. The biological factors that contribute to a syndemic can be communicable (can be spread to others) or noncommunicable (can’t be spread to others) in nature. Syndemic is increasingly used in the context of sociological and economic factors that contribute to syndemics. In 2020, the term syndemic saw mainstream attention after the scientific journal The Lancet repeatedly used the term in reference to the COVID-19 virus.
