Registered author(s):

    Beginning by establishing the scale of the global burden of infectious diseases, this paper examines why Canada should intervene in this issue, the main incentives being self-interest, health as a human right, economic investment and productivity requirements, and security implications. It then goes on to outline several ways forward for Canadian action such as: donor and government coordination, effective and efficient use of aid, involvement of the private sector, and use of non-aid instruments. It ends by advocating that Canada can do more than it presently does to combat this burden.
