    21 diciembre 2017

    As we turn the page on 2017 and welcome 2018, we look back on some of the stories we’ve shared over the year. This brief review can hardly summarize all that’s happened in the fight to end the epidemics of HIV, TB and malaria.

    The Edge of Elimination

    24 abril 2017

    You won’t find the village of Bus Saam on most maps. Nor the earthen tracks that lead to this collection of wooden homes surrounded by sorghum and rice fields in western Cambodia. When the rainy season comes and dissolves the dirt roads into deep, sticky mud, the 1,000 residents are even more acutely isolated – far from the edge of anything like a town and a three-hour walk to the nearest health center.
