Economic globalization, demographic changes, and the increased costs of infectious disease control and prevention for human health and welfare emphasize the interdependence of all nations. As efforts are made to improve trade and bring democratic governance to countries in the developing world, the crucial needs of public health cannot be forgotten. Strengthened national and regional public health systems not only will reduce the level of human suffering from infectious diseases but also can promote economic growth and political stability among those countries most affected.

Correspondingly, in June 1995 the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) convened a meeting of international experts to discuss strategies for the prevention and control of emerging infectious diseases. As a result of that meeting, a regional plan of action was prepared to develop regional and subregional approaches and to guide member states in addressing specific problems (Figure 9). The regional plan has four goals: (1) strengthening regional surveillance networks for infectious diseases in the Americas; (2) establishing national and regional infrastructures for early warning about and rapid response to infectious disease threats through multidisciplinary training programs and enhancement of laboratory capabilities; (3) promoting the further development of applied research in the areas of diagnosis, epidemiology, prevention, and clinical studies; and (4) strengthening the regional capacity for effective implementation of prevention and control strategies (see Chapter 2).
