向结核病开火

索尔纳,瑞典—结核病是全世界最致命的疾病。光是在2013年,就有150万人死于结核病,其中五分之一是低收入国家成年人。尽管每年患结核病的估计人数在下降,但降幅十分缓慢。而由于具有多重抗药性的结核病的普遍化,患病人数下降的趋势可能发生逆转。

尽管如此,如今世界仍有一丝希望根除结核病。抓住这一机会需要迅速研发和普及高效诊断工具、新的药物治疗和创新性疫苗,并辅之以确保卫生系统能够及时对症下药的措施。这绝不是简单的任务。

好消息是国际社会似乎热切地想行动起来。世界卫生组织的2015年后 全球结核病战略(2014年5月在世界卫生大会上通过)的目标是在2035年根除结核病。9月,联合国的193个成员国将正式开始实施可持续发展目标,在2030年根除结核病也是目标之一。

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
