Drug-Resistant TB Poses Global Threat, Needs More Attention, Global Fund Head Peter Sands Says In AFP Interview
Agence France-Presse: Deadly drug-resistant TB a ‘blinking red’ global threat
“Deadly, drug-resistant tuberculosis — as lethal as Ebola and tough to treat in even the best hospitals — is a ‘blinking red’ worldwide threat, the head of a global health fund warned in an interview with AFP. … ‘We should all be more worried about multidrug-resistant TB than we are. It gets nothing like the level of attention it should do,’ Peter Sands, Global Fund’s head, told AFP during a visit to New Delhi. … A meeting will be held in the Indian capital on Friday to prepare for Global Fund’s next three-yearly conference — to take place in Lyon next October” (2/7).
