From the rulebook:
"You and your colleagues are highly skilled members of an animal disease-fighting team waging a battle against four deadly diseases. Your team will travel across the globe, reducing the tide of infection and developing the resources you'll need to discover the treatments. You must collaborate, using your individual strengths to destroy the diseases before they overtake the world. The clock is ticking as outbreaks and epizootics rapidly succeed each other. Will you find the treatments in time? The fate of all animals worldwide is in your hands!"
