Blog: Conversation With Journalist About Global Scale of Drug Resistance

February 5, 2010

The Center for Global Development's "Global Health Policy" blog features snippets from a conversation with journalist Margie Mason, who "spent the better part of 2009 taking a global tour of drug resistance," which was detailed in am Associated Press series on the worldwide impact of drug resistance published in December 2009. In the blog, Mason describes the challenges associated with treating drug-resistance in developing countries. "Awareness, such as that generated by the AP series and similar articles, will be crucial in stemming the spread of once curable drug-resistant diseases across the world," the blog concludes (Nugent, 2/2).
