The Geopolitics of Disease

Diseases are the ultimate mercenaries: They are impersonal, impartial, godless, stateless, apolitical. Every citizen from every country will eventually contract one, or more than one, sometimes to tragic effect. And when outbreaks grow so large that they disrupt supply chains, stunt economic growth, dictate technological development or affect the relations of nations, death from disease becomes something other than personal tragedy — it becomes a geopolitical crisis.
