Summary
"This new volume ... aims to address demands and challenges that various infections present to the world at large ('global challenges'), such as the HIV pandemic, continuous threat of spreading common multiresistant pathogenic bacteria, multidrug and extensive drug-resistant tuberculosis, and the influence we can expect on these epidemics with global climate change and international urbanization ... Chapters on these various topics authored by world-renowned experts on these areas provide state-of-the-art reviews on epidemiology, biology, clinical aspects, prevention, current approaches to control, and prevention such as new vaccines, and reassessment of past and present methods are discussed"--Pref
