    Abstract

    This paper identifies priorities for disease control as an input into the Copenhagen Consensus effort for 2008 (CC08). As such, it updates the evidence and differs somewhat in its conclusions from the communicable disease paper (Mills and Shilcutt, 2004) prepared for Copenhagen Consensus 2004, which Lomborg (2006) summarizes.
