Diseases of Poverty: Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases, and Modern Plagues
Adams, Lisa V. and John R. Butterly

Adams and Butterly examine the epidemiology and social impact of past and present infectious disease epidemics in the developing and developed world. They present early and contemporary perspectives on disease and disease control, examine specific diseases that represent “loud” and “silent emergencies,” and explore topics including: antibiotic resistance, AIDS, malaria, pandemic influenza, and nutrition and sanitation. The work of USAID is discussed in several chapters.
