Detail

This report assesses the threats of infectious diseases in humans, animals and plants over the next 10 to 25 years. It explores the role that future technologies might play in the management of disease, in particular through new systems for detection, identification and monitoring.

The report looks at both developed and developing countries, with a particular focus on sub-Saharan Africa.

Further details of the project are available from the infectious diseases project page.
