A group of 350 physicians, scientists, policymakers, government officials and business leaders are expected to attend the biennial conference, which ends on Wednesday. Themed Global Infectious Diseases: Prevention, Preparedness, and Response, the conference aims to address how China and the US can work to develop a global strategy that deploys new actions to avert widespread human suffering and economic and social disruption that could result from bioterrorism or epidemics involving the Ebola virus, influenza and other diseases.
