AIDS, SARS, influenza, West Nile fever, cholera, tuberculosis, ebola — these diseases represent only some of the threats to public health that have exploded over the past decades.
Concern is growing worldwide about a virulent strain of avian influenza – or ‘bird flu’ – that is spreading through countries in East Asia.

The overall aim of the Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net) is to enhance the provision of reliable and authoritative information on science- and technology-related issues that impact on the economic and social development of developing countries.
Our goal is to ensure that both individuals and organisations in the developing world are better placed to make informed decisions on these issues.
We seek to achieve this objective primarily through running a free-access website, but also by building regional networks of individuals and institutions who share our goals, and by organising capacity-building workshops and other events in the developing world.
