Scientific American Previews U.N. General Assembly High-Level Meeting On Drug Resistance

Scientific American: Superbug Explosion Triggers U.N. General Assembly Meeting
“…The threat of antibiotic resistance has become so dire that the United Nations General Assembly is holding a meeting to discuss it this month in New York City. Although WHO has been sounding the alarm on antibiotic resistance for years, this month’s high-level U.N. meeting represents only the fourth time in the international body’s history that its General Assembly — a global deliberative body that primarily grapples with issues like war and economics — has held a meeting to tackle a health topic. (The other three were HIV, noncommunicable diseases, and Ebola.)…” (Maron, 9/7).
