Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World

Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do? What makes them spread so quickly? Where do we look for the next one?

Our world is connected more than ever before by global travel and trade, by technology and by our microbes. Join us for a discussion that examines the connections between human, animal and environmental health, and discover how specialists in India and around the world track and respond to disease outbreaks.

The exhibition is part of an ongoing project at the Harvard Global Health Institute that aims to raise awareness about the factors contributing to infectious disease epidemics.
