International health officials are warning that a deadly avian influenza virus may soon spread rapidly, overwhelming unprepared health systems in rich and poor countries alike. As a call to action, the July/August issue of Foreign Affairs includes a special set of articles on the threat of global pandemics. In collaboration with Nature magazine, Foreign Affairs has provided this coverage to assist the efforts of the Royal Institution World Science Assembly.
