How to use "Pestilence" in context?

Pestilence is a serious global health problem. Though largely preventable by vaccines and public health measures, death from infectious diseases still claims more lives than any other cause. In 2013, around 1.3 million people died from communicable diseases, making them the leading cause of death globally. Neglected tropical diseases, including malaria and AIDS, are also major killers, claiming over 600,000 lives each year. Pestilence is not simply a scourge of the poor or elderly: it is a preventable death sentence for anyone, anywhere.
