In 1918, the Spanish flu infected one-third of the planet (500 million people). Of these, as many as 50 million died. For all of science's advances in combatting infectious disease, we still have trouble protecting people against flu. Are we ready for the next pandemic?

Sherryl Broverman is Associate Professor of the Practice in Biology and Global Health at Duke.
