Can 21st century science finally tame these age-old enemies?
From the bubonic plague to malaria and swine flu, infectious diseases that spread through communities and across borders have significantly shaped human history. Today, a new strain of influenza could spread even more rapidly than in 1918 when millions died worldwide. Alarmingly, despite modern medical and communication advances, disease epidemics and pandemics can still wreak havoc as a global public health issue in both scale and impact.
Our panel of experts will discuss significant disease outbreaks, how they affect populations and the most likely 21st century disease threats. What is science doing to improve prevention, prediction and response strategies?
