This silver medal commemorates Hamburg’s deliverance from a plague epidemic in The Great Northern War (–), a conflict in which a coalition led by the Tsardom of Russia successfully contested the supremacy of the Swedish Empire in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe provided the setting for the pestilence.

The relation between climate change and infectious diseases in Europe thus calls for careful assessment and analysis. In this Review we look at the evidence for climate-related changes in infectious disease incidence, distribution, localised outbreaks, and potential for the establishment of tropical vector species in Europe.

For example, in meningococcal infections, an attack rate in excess of 15 cases perpeople for two consecutive weeks is considered an epidemic. The ‘Great Frost’ famine, and the way it influenced mortality rates in Europe, has been analysed in John D. Post, Food Shortage, Climatic Variability, and Epidemic Disease in Preindustrial Europe (New York: Cornell University Press, ).

Post argues that social disarray, including the failure of famine relief measures, was as important as. Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe presented evidence of health trends in Europe and emphasized that a strong European Health Policy - Healthmandated by the Member States, can be a strong catalyst for success in the fight against the noncommunicable disease (NCD) epidemic.

African trypanosomiasis, also known as African sleeping sickness or simply sleeping sickness, is an insect-borne parasitic infection of humans and other animals. It is caused by the species Trypanosoma brucei.

Humans are infected by two types, Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (TbG) and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (TbR). TbG causes over 98% of reported cases.
