the goal was to increase attention to threats not yet widely recognized But the TB Alliance a nonprofit research and advocacy group based in New York City calls on WHO to reconsider "The absence of TB from this list is shocking” the alliance’s President and CEO Mel Spigelman said in a statement yesterday "Every global effort to address the burgeoning AMR [antimicrobial resistance] emergency must include TB" In a response WHO Director-General Margaret Chan emphasized that "[a]ddressing drug-resistant TB research is a top priority for WHO and for the world" WHO released its list ahead of a meeting of G20 health experts this week in Berlin where the topic of antibiotic resistance is high on the agenda The focus is appropriate Gastmeier says “This is not a problem that we can solve at a national level and it is one in which low- and middle-income countries are linked to high-income ones” A prime example: The woman who died in Nevada had spent time in India where she most likely acquired the resistant strain *Update 1 March 10:35 am: This item has been updated to include a statement from the TB Alliance and additional comments from WHOWritten by Hamari Jamatia | New Delhi | Published: June 15 2009 3:28 am Related News Many aspirants are looking at vocational studies at Delhi University this year Courses such as Small and Medium Enterprises not only have classes on setting up self-reliant businesses but also teach students how to run established businesses more effectively These courses are available at the College of Vocational Studieslocated at Sheikh Sarai The college also offers courses in TourismOffice Administration and Secretarial PracticeManagement and Marketing ExperienceMaterial ManagementHuman Resource Management and Marketing Management and Retail Business Principal Inder Jeet says the course on Small and Medium Enterprises is especially good for people who want to set up their own business after they graduate Many students belong to families that have an established business and are looking at ways to make them stronger?
