                         the rest of the world as a buffer against climate change. The 
                         recent election of Brazils president brought disputes over 
                         development plans for the region back into the spotlight. 
                         Historically, the development model for the Amazon has focused on 
                         exploitation of natural resources, resulting in environmental 
                         degradation, particularly deforestation. Although considerable 
                         attention has focused on the long-term global cost of losing the 
                         Amazon, too little attention has focused on the emergence and 
                         reemergence of vector-borne diseases that directly impact the 
                         local population, with spillover effects to other neighboring 
                         areas. We discuss the impact of Amazon development models on human 
                         health, with a focus on vector-borne disease risk. We outline 
                         policy actions that could mitigate these negative impacts while 
                         creating opportunities for environmentally sensitive economic 
                         activities.",
