The Race Against Drug Resistance

Center for Global Development

“This must-read report lays out the global threat
of resistant microbes across all infectious
diseases—what we call a “Shadow Epidemic.” It
illustrates the interactive factors driving the
problem and opportunities for donors, funders,
and infectious disease networks to work
together to control and reverse resistance.”

Professor of Molecular Biology / Microbiology and
Medicine, Tufts University School of Medicine

“Antibiotics are a global resource and the world has
a responsibility to use this resource for the greatest
good of humanity while protecting their effectiveness.
CGD’s new report puts this issue front and center and
offers a valuable set of recommendations to extend
the power of drugs to fight infectious diseases.”
