WASHINGTON POST | Yes, we should be scared about the rise of drug resistance. But we need not feel helpless. There are solutions, writes Michelle Williams, Dean of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in a compelling opinion piece on solutions to address the rising drug-resistance crisis. We need to reduce misuse and overuse of antibiotics. We must also put in place financial incentives, in addition to CARB-X’s support of innovative R&D, to ensure that new medicines and diagnostics reach the market and patients who need them. Reversing the tide of antibiotic resistance won’t be easy. Experts agree that this crisis is solvable with science and with money. The time to act is now.
