Outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) seemingly appear without warning, severely exacerbating public and animal health burdens and spreading across borders. Since 1940, the rate of infectious disease emergence events has risen. Given the considerable economic and other societal costs associated with EIDs, understanding the specific drivers of these diseases and developing concrete measures to prevent and mitigate their spread is urgently needed in both health security and sustainable… 
Pandemics– One Health preparedness for the next
The Lancet Regional Health-Europe
Developing agnostic or more targeted metagenomic sequencing to assess unusual disease in humans and animals, combined with random sampling of environmental samples capturing pathogen circulation is technically challenging, but could provide a true early warning system.
Pandemics and the human-wildlife interface in Asia: land use change as a driver of zoonotic viral outbreaks
Pandemics have occurred with increasing frequency over the past century as global travel enables rapid cross-continental transmission of viral zoonoses such as coronaviruses and influenzas. Yet the
Physiological Thresholds in the Context of Marine Mammal Conservation.
Evidence is presented of how drivers of environmental change can exert effects at different levels of biological organization to influence the viability of individuals and populations, and which aspects of environmentalchange could be the most likely to shift the physiological thresholds of different marine mammal species.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection: Spectrum of Rheumatic Manifestations
After the introduction of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), a decline of spondyloarthritis disorders and of DILS and development of new syndromes such as IRIS, osteoporosis and avascular bone necrosis have occurred, and the treatment of patients with rheumatic diseases and HIV infection remains a challenge.
The Influence of Habitat on Viral Diversity in Neotropical Rodent Hosts
Characterizing the viral diversity in seven neotropical rodent species living in four types of habitats and exploring how the extent of environmental disturbance influences this diversity provide significant insights into the diversity of rodent viruses in Amazonia and emphasize that habitats and the host's dietary ecology may drive viral diversity.
Human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV)–associated rheumatic manifestations in thepre- and post-HAART eras
The purpose of this review is to define and discuss the HIV-related rheumatic manifestations in the pre- and post-HAART eras.
Covid-19 exposes the UK’s broken food system
A proposed agriculture bill fails to fix the "waste-to-nutrition crisis" in the United States, which has affected agriculture for more than a century and affected the quality of life for millions of Americans.


Global trends in emerging infectious diseases
It is concluded that global resources to counter disease emergence are poorly allocated, with the majority of the scientific and surveillance effort focused on countries from where the next important EID is least likely to originate.
Interdisciplinary approaches to understanding disease emergence: The past, present, and future drivers of Nipah virus emergence
It is shown that the distribution of Henipavirus reservoirs, and therefore henipaviruses, will likely change under climate change scenarios, a fundamental precondition for disease emergence in humans, and there is substantial potential to use this modeling framework to explore the distributionof wildlife hosts under a changing climate.
Targeting Transmission Pathways for Emerging Zoonotic Disease Surveillance and Control.
The results suggest that at the broad scale, the likelihood of transmission occurring through any one pathway is approximately equal, however, the major transmission pathways for zoonoses differ widely according to the specific underlying drivers of EID events.
Emerging infectious diseases of wildlife--threats to biodiversity and human health.
These phenomena have two major biological implications: many wildlife species are reservoirs of pathogens that threaten domestic animal and human health; second, wildlife EIDs pose a substantial threat to the conservation of global biodiversity.
Climate Change and Health: Transcending Silos to Find Solutions
Risk factors for human disease emergence.
This study represents the first quantitative analysis identifying risk factors for human disease emergence, with protozoa and viruses particularly likely to emerge, and helminths particularly unlikely to do so, irrespective of their zoonotic status.
Economic optimization of a global strategy to address the pandemic threat
It is concluded that globally coordinated pandemic prevention policies need to be enacted urgently to be optimally effective and that strategies to mitigate pandemics by reducing the impact of their underlying drivers are likely to be more effective than business as usual.
Drivers for emerging issues in animal and plant health
This paper aims to help in preparing for the cultural and methodological shifts needed in the approach to emerging risks.
Effects of species diversity on disease risk.
A suite of mechanisms through which diversity could increase or decrease disease risk is described, and the potential applicability of these mechanisms for both vector-borne and non-vector-borne diseases, and for both specialist and generalist pathogens is illustrated.
