04 Jan 2018 PLOS Publishes Plague Article By Bonds And Team
In the latest issue of PLOS Neglected Tropical Disease, PIVOT co-CEO Matt Bonds leads an article about Madagascar’s most recent plague outbreak, which claimed over 200 lives in late 2017.
Paul Farmer, senior author of the paper, notes, “in the district of Ifanadiana, where PIVOT has been strengthening the health system, 29 out 30 plague patients survived. This proves that when government, nongovernmental, and academic partners fully cooperate in accordance with the Ministry of Health agenda and make long-term commitments to its implementation, scourges like plague can be overcome.”
