"Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, and the number of deaths from infectious diseases in the United States has been increasing. The wide use of effective antibiotics, the potential for universal immunization for many childhood illnesses, and success stories such as the imminent eradication of polio encouraged the perception that infectious diseases are no longer a public health threat. However, even as some previously epidemic infectious diseases have been controlled, new diseases emerge and old disease rebound, sometimes in drug-resistant forms. These events increasingly challenge public health and medical care professionals."
