Abstract:

In 2001, an Institute of Medicine committee was charged to identify, review, and assess the current state of knowledge and policy responses pertaining to emerging microbial threats to health. Re-visiting the 1992 Institute of Medicine report, Emerging Infections: Microbial Threats to Health in the United States, the committee re-examined factors in emergence including: human demographics and behavior; microbial adaptation and change; technology and industry; economic development and land use; international travel and commerce; and breakdown of public health measures. Previously unrecognized factors were identified and evaluated for their impact on the emergence of infectious diseases. The committee assessed the capacity of the United States to respond to emerging microbial threats by identifying recommendations for domestic and international public health actions to strengthen the detection, response and prevention of emerging microbial threats.
