RESULTS blog: President Obama Working on an Action Plan to Stop Drug-Resistant TB
David Bryden, the TB advocacy officer at RESULTS, writes, “This week RESULTS, along with 12 other leading U.S. and international organizations, sent a letter to President Obama to thank him for initiating the development of a U.S. Government National Action Plan for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB). The letter urges the President to develop a comprehensive and ambitious plan and to propose the necessary funding required for agencies to implement the plan, beginning in FY 2017. … He has already issued a bold plan on antimicrobial resistance, and this new plan on TB specifically is slated for publication in September…” (7/28).
