Editorial: Emerging, zoonotic, and vector-borne diseases: crossing boundaries to improve health

Emerging, zoonotic, and vector-borne diseases are often lumped together in a seemingly hodge-podge “other” category of infectious diseases. Although the pathogens causing these diseases are different, factors that they have in common are discussed here. In this issue of the Quarterly, you will find articles that represent a diverse array of scientific perspectives from around the world, bringing a wide range of epidemiological approaches to bear on emerging, zoonotic, and vector-borne diseases.
