November 13, 2009

Summit "to establish a transatlantic task force on urgent antimicrobial resistance issues." According to the blog, "There's no doubt that drug resistance presents an urgent threat to people's health across the world" and the task force "has promise" to address the issue, "[b]ut many questions remain." The new task force "must be global" and "consider the challenges of effectively preventing and treating disease in poorer communities with weak health systems infrastructure and human resource capacity" (Nugent, 11/9).
