The Epi package is mainly focused on "classical" chronic disease epidemiology. The package has grown out of the course Statistical Practice in Epidemiology using R (see http://www.pubhealth.ku.dk/~bxc/SPE).
There is A short introduction to R for Epidemiology available at http://staff.pubhealth.ku.dk/%7Ebxc/Epi/R-intro.pdf Beware that the pages 38-120 of this is merely the manual pages for the Epi package.
Epi is not the only R-package for epidemiological analysis, a package with more affinity to infectious disease epidemiology is the epitools package which is also evailable in Debian.
Epi is used in the Department of Biostatistics of the University of Copenhagen.
Notes on how this package can be tested. ──────────────────────────────────────── This package can be tested by loading it into R with the command ‘library(Epi)’ in order to confirm its integrity.
