European Scientists Release Infectious-Disease Strategy

Eurosurveillance notes the publication of a report outlining infectious-disease priorities established by a panel of medical experts. Top priorities include:

  • continued research into antibiotic resistance
  • catch up with US policy development to counter bioterrorist threats
