China has undergone rapid demographic and epidemiological changes over the past 30 years. One of the most exciting changes is the health improvement with significantly increased life expectancy (1). Infectious diseases, which used to be the primary threat in public health, have been greatly reduced (2). However, infectious diseases continue to exact a substantial toll on public health resources in China. Attention to and action against emerging infections and infectious diseases greatly increased after the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in southern China in 2003. In addition, endemic diseases, including H5N1, , human granulocytic anaplasmosis, EV17, H1N1, H7N9, H10N8, and some other zoonotic infections, affect millions of individuals, further heightening public health concerns.
