Surveying the Risks from Emerging Diseases

Abstract:Despite advances in sanitation and public health, new waterborne diseases have continued to cause outbreaks in humans. The reason why these organisms can cause disease outbreaks, is that their biology allows them to circumvent the safeguards put in place to prevent transmission of other diseases. Most of these agents of disease already exist in the environment, but become important causes of disease only when conditions change to favor their transmission. A number of emerging diseases will be discussed.
