U.S. TB Funding Should Reflect Global Threat Posed By Drug-Resistant Strains

New York Times: Losing the Fight Against Tuberculosis
Patrick Adams, freelance journalist

“…Americans can no longer afford to be indifferent to the rise of drug-resistant tuberculosis. … At least in the short term, poor countries need the specialized expertise only America can provide.
