  • The Race Against Drug Resistance - "Must-read report"

    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.”

    Dr. Stuart B. Levy
    President, Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics;
    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.”

    Dr. Ramanan Laxminarayan
    Senior Fellow and Director of the Center
    for Disease Dynamics, Economics, and
    Policy, Resources for the Future
