Description/Abstract

"The movement of people has long been recognized as a major component in the transmission of disease as well as other adverse health effects.... This chapter looks at the issues relating to population movements and health, then relates them to issues of personal, national, regional, and global security." The authors review the history of epidemics in modern times, and discuss the current status of the main infectious diseases, including AIDS. They also look at policy responses to these global threats. (Excerpt)
