After 2015: infectious diseases in a new era of health and development
The MDG era draws to a close in 2015, and a new set of goals will focus on poverty reduction and sustainable development. In the area of health, these new goals will take on non-communicable diseases, nutritional disorders, mental health and injuries, and risks linked to environmental and climate change. There will be a marked shift in political support and funding as the
prevention and control of infectious diseases is placed in a wider context.
At this critical juncture, this issue of Philosophical Transactions B explores the frontiers of infection biology at the level of individuals (molecular, cellular, genetic, immune) and populations (demography, ecology, epidemiology). It asks how efforts to investigate and control infections will fare in the era of sustainable development, and how science can help to meet the challenge.
