These are just a few. Changing environmental conditions lead to changing health threats. Health threats on a large scale can quickly become security issues as populations begin to move or as nations erect barriers to real or perceived external threats. Large scale health threats can arise from large scale environmental changes, from new pandemics with environmental vectors, or in stressed communities with limited health services.
