This volume on Global Epidemiology, is the third of a series which covers the region generally known as the Near and Middle East. Countries or dependencies covered include Cyprus, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Aden, Bahrain, Kuwait, Muscat and Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Trucial Oman, Yemen. In other words, the approaches to Eastern Asia and Europe, as well as the Arabian Peninsula are included.

This is truly a monumental task, since so little is known of so many parts of this vast area. Unfortunately, national boundaries are not barriers to the spread of disease by the Bedouin in the desert so that the divisions by national boundaries are totally artificial in most cases.

Not only is geography and climate covered, but population (where known) and socioeconomic conditions, environment and sanitation, health services and medical facilities, and diseases reported by various means, and a summary and bibliography comprise each country's report.
