In this paper, we study the effects of diffusion and advection for an SIS epidemic reaction-diffusion-advection model in a spatially and temporally heterogeneous environment. We introduce the basic reproduction number $\mathcal{R}_{0}$ and establish the threshold-type results on the global dynamics in terms of $\mathcal{R}_{0}$. Some general qualitative properties of $\mathcal{R}_{0}$ are presented, then the paper is devoted to studying how the advection and diffusion of the infected individuals affect the reproduction number $\mathcal{R}_{0}$ for the special case that $γ(x,t)-β(x,t) = V(x,t)$ is monotone with respect to spatial variable $x$. Our results suggest that if $V_{x}(x,t)≥0,\not\equiv0$ and $V(x, t)$ changes sign about $x$, the advection is beneficial to eliminate the disease, whereas if $V_{x}(x,t)≤0,\not\equiv0$ and $V(x, t)$ changes sign about $x$, the advection is bad for the elimination of disease.
