This presentation will briefly review past history and present patterns in the interactions between parasites (defined broadly to include viruses and bacteria along with protozoan, helminth and arthropod parasites) and human populations, in developed and developing countries. Against this background I shall offer some thoughts on current public health initiatives, at national and international levels, with particular reference to the Millennium Development Goals.
