February 2016
GLOBAL ID
Science Speaks
When the 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health convened Dec. 2-6 in Cape Town, South Africa, the IDSA Center for Global Health Policy Science Speaks blog was there, providing live coverage of:
New availability of fixed-dose medicines to treat TB in pediatric patients;
Success in shorter TB treatment regimens;
Risks faced by health workers in high TB burden settings;
And more . . .
At home, Science Speaks covered the White House release and launch of its National Action Plan for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis.
 
Science Speaks looked back at events that dominated the global health landscape last year, and how they will shape responses in the year ahead in the blog’s annual Top 10 stories in HIV, TB and more.
