dc.description.abstractAsia has been at the epicenter of some recent emerging infectious diseases. The outbreaks of SARS and avian influenza make it clear that communicable diseases, especially emerging infectious diseases, continue to pose serious public health threats in the Asia-Pacific Region and to the world at large. Countries and areas in the Asia-Pacific Region must be better prepared to meet these challenges if they hope to minimize their impact on health and economic development and prevent the international spread of disease. The Asia-Pacific Strategy for Emerging Diseases is comprehensive, seeking to improve the ability to respond to infectious disease threats throughout the Region. Its goal is far-reaching, easily stated but difficult to achieve. We present this document as a launching pad and roadmap on the journey to that goal.en_US
