Summary

In the 21st century, emerging infectious diseases (EID) will pose a massive threat to world health - unless concerted global action is undertaken to combat the problem. This booklet is designed to provide insights and possible solutions to some of the problems found in this rapidly expanding field. The booklet discusses how to determine where such diseases originate, why we appear to be prone to these novel, exotic infections, and why they seem to be appearing at an ever increasing rate.
