You don't. It naturally stops on it's own. It will stop faster if everyone gets vaccinated so they can't get it and then pass it on. If it is necessary, countries have the ability to quarantine sick citizens, and prevent entry of those with acute infectious diseases at the borders. You can also lessen the spread by preventive measures such as good hand washing, and avoiding crowded locations.

1) Networks of hospitals, the CDC, WHO, and other medical personnel need to identify and track the spread of the epidemic

2) Quarantine measures need to be enacted to prevent the spread of the epidemic

3) Samples should be taken of the disease, and analysis should be performed to try to identify and type the disease so that a vaccine can be found

4) Vaccinations should be administered to unaffected individuals (starting with healthcare workers, other people in the field, the elderly, and small children) to prevent them from contracting the illness without immunity (reducing its duration or preventing infection in the population)

5) Public hygiene campaigns (cover nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing, wash hands, etc.) should be publicized to educate the public about ways in which they can prevent contracting or spreading disease

You can not get 'Rid' of the communicable diseases. There are large number of viruses and you can not prepare the vaccines for all at present. Man is a social animal and he can not live without the society. (Although he spends most of the time in fighting and competing with the others in the society.)

What is the difference between epidemic and pandemic?

An epidemic is when new cases of a given disease spread throughout a given population at a rate that is greater than would normally be expected. The disease in question doesn't have to be contagious to fit the definition of epidemic. As far as a pandemic goes, you might say it is an epidemic on steroids. By that I mean, that when an epidemic spreads over a large area--over a continent, several continents, or even global--it becomes a pandemic. If the number of people who are becoming sick with the epidemic disease is stable (meaning the disease is spreading over a great distance, but the number of people who are sick at any given time is remaining relatively the same), then it is not a pandemic. Finally, for a disease to meet pandemic criteria, it must be infectious.
