The Next Pandemic: On the Front Lines Against Humankind's Gravest Dangers

In more than 20 years at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Ali S. Khan found that rogue microbes will always be a problem, but outbreaks are often caused by people. We make mistakes, politicize emergencies, and, too often, fail to imagine the consequences of our actions.

With the Zika virus as the newest threat, are we prepared for the next pandemic? What can we learn from Ebola, SARS, and other modern outbreaks?

Ali S. Khan is dean of the College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He previously spent 23 years at the CDC, before retiring as director of the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response in 2014.
