Protecting Worldwide Populations
Although progress has been made to stamp out or control many infectious diseases, the global population remains vulnerable to a wide array of new and resurgent organisms.
The problem is complicated by rapid biological processes that result in the emergence of new, potentially dangerous bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. In addition, other factors make humankind more vulnerable to the spread of infectious agents such as microorganisms developing resistance to the drugs used against them, population crowding and easy world travel and the potential for bioterrorism to spread eradicated or rare infectious diseases such as smallpox and anthrax.
