Improved hygiene and better preventionand treatment have diminished the incidenceof infectious diseases particularlyin industrialised countries. However, increasing antibiotic resistance, emergence of new pathogens, together with changes in pathogen distribution due to altered climate and mobility are global challenges for humankind.

New strategies and methods for early warning and outbreak management systems will be developed to control spread of pathogens.
