CFR Writer Discusses Global Rise In Measles Cases, Threat Of Anti-Vaccination Movement To Global Health Progress

Council on Foreign Relations: Measles and the Threat of the Anti-vaccination Movement
Claire Felter, copy editor/writer at CFR, discusses the global rise in measles cases and the threat of vaccine skepticism, writing, “The anti-vaccination movement threatens to undo years of progress made against a range of preventable diseases. … Until governments turn the tide of the anti-vaccination movement, health workers will face the dual challenge of containing measles in both countries where the disease is still endemic and those where it was thought long gone” (3/12).
