Population Mobility and Association with Infectious Diseases and Microbial Resistance. Each year, ≈2 billion persons move across large geographic distances; approximately half cross international boundaries (Table).The International Air Transport Association reported that their members carried billion passengers in , among which million flew internationally ().Cited by: The book argues that while biomedical events cause disease, social forces such as poverty and marginalization magnify them by giving them new opportunities to take hold. Population mobility—either voluntary or forced—brings contact between populations with different disease prevalence rates; outbreaks in turn are compounded by inequalities. Population Mobility and Infectious Disease moves beyond traditional behavioral and demographic theories of disease diffusion to focus on larger issues of social ecology and public health. With depth rarely seen in the international literature, it explores the complex and varied roles of mobile. Also, increasingly, tourism and leisure are regarded as steps in a continuum of human mobility. Inclusion of mobility in the series offers the prospect to examine the relationship between tourism and migration, the sojourner, educational travel, and .

Population Mobility and Infectious Disease moves beyond traditional behavioral and demographic theories of disease diffusion to focus on larger issues of social ecology and public health. The impact of population mobility on public health remains an under-explored area, and this volume would fill a needed gap in the literature. Focusing on socially produced diseases, this book covers key themes pertinent to labor-induced migration, forced migration, and leisure-based mobility and how they impact infectious diseases.   1.
