Managing Epidemics: Key facts about major deadly diseases
We are pleased to announce that a WHO book was a winner at the prestigious BMA medical book awards this year.

Managing Epidemics: Key facts about major deadly diseases
has been Highly Commended in the Public health category of the 2019 BMA Medical Book Awards.

"This is a well-structured and clear book with excellent illustrations that would provide a clear guide to senior PH officials at the start of an incident. It has also the potential for use as teaching materials. I enjoyed reading this book and will retain it as a reference. I hope it will continue to be updated and remain current."

This manual provides concise and up-to-date knowledge on 15 infectious diseases that have the potential to become international threats, and tips on how to respond to each of them. Although originally developed as guidance for WHO officials, this publication is available to a wide readership including all frontline responders - communities, government officials, non-State actors and public health professionals - who need to respond rapidly and effectively when an outbreak is detected.

The British Medical Association established its annual BMA Medical book competition in 1996. The competition aims to encourage and reward excellence in medical publishing.
