Human health is connected to animal and environmental health. As our population grows, we interact with animals and the environment in new ways that can cause disease outbreaks and epidemics.
Our world is connected more than ever before—by global travel and trade, by technology, and even by infectious diseases.
Around the world, people are working together to stop outbreaks—sometimes before they even start.
Join us for a closer look at past and present epidemics in this pop-up exhibit from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
