POLITICO Examines U.S. Government Efforts To Combat Antimicrobial Resistance As Part Of ‘Agenda 2020’ Report

POLITICO: Inside the government’s war on microbes
“…Health leaders have been sounding the alarm that infectious disease could become the first big medical gain that humans eventually surrender. … Part of the problem is that this is one medical calamity the private sector isn’t well-suited to fix. … So Washington has stepped into the gap. … Some of the plan was to improve policy and medical practice: developing better medical testing and surveillance, for example, and figuring out how to better use the existing antibiotics. But some of it was a radical investment in the future…” This article is part of POLITICO’s “Agenda 2020: A special report on the future of health” (Haberkorn, 12/13).
