Summary The Thematic Reference Group on Environment Agriculture and Infectious Diseases of Poverty (TRG 4) addresses the nature of the intersections and interactions between environment agriculture and infectious diseases of poverty in order to identify research priorities for improved disease control. This report reviews the connections between environmental change modern agricultural practices and the occurrence of infectious diseases - especially those of poverty- and proposes a methodology that can be used to prioritize research on such diseases. Although there is some comprehension of the underly
