In this book, leading experts discuss the threat posed by emerging viruses and describe ongoing efforts to face future outbreaks by searching for new antivirals, developing new vaccines, and improving methods of diagnosis and surveillance. Viruses under consideration include SARS coronavirus, avian influenza virus H5N1, henipaviruses, Ross River virus, and viruses causing diseases in fish and shrimp. Because of a lack of infrastructure and trained manpower in Southeast Asia, these countries depend on international collaboration, funding and technical assistance to strengthen regional expertise in their fight against emerging diseases.
Primarily aimed at scientists and medical doctors, this book will also be of interest to policy makers, governmental and non-governmental organizations and anyone who is concerned with public health and epidemiology.
