As expanding human communities result in radical modifications to our natural environments, previously harmless micro-organisms take on lethal potential. Moreover, existing diseases continually threaten to re-emerge or spread. This issue of Medical Clinics of North America looks at important aspects of this troubling topic and features the following articles: the Role of Migrants and Immigrants in Infectious Disease; Global Environment Change and Infectious Disease; the Role of the Traveller; Cholera; Rickettsial and Other Emerging Tick-borne Infections; West Nile Virus; Surveillance of Microbial Threats; HIV/AIDS; Chikungunya Virus Infections; Rift Valley Fever; Medical Tourism; Changing Patterns of Dengue and the Role of Travellers; and Antimicrobial Resistance.
