U.K. Chancellor To Urge Global Action On Antimicrobial Resistance At IMF Expert Panel Meeting

The Guardian: Antimicrobial resistance a ‘greater threat than cancer by 2050’
“Antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics will present a greater danger to humankind than cancer by the middle of the century unless world leaders agree international action to tackle the threat, according to George Osborne. The British chancellor will tell a panel of experts at an IMF meeting in Washington that 10 million people a year could die across the world by 2050 — more than the number of people lost to cancer every year — without radical action…” (Watt, 4/14).
