In this study, it is considered mathematical epidemiology as a sub-discipline and given a descriptive application. This effort gives some impacts of epidemics on economics and business and some possible scenarios. It is discussed some mathematical models and their contributions regarding the current A/H1N1 pandemics. This paper highlightes the importance of synergy stemming from the cooperations of quantitative and health scientists.
