North Korea has a big tuberculosis problem. It’s about to get worse. – The Washington Post

The Global Fund is pulling out of North Korea. That’s a problem.

Bloomberg News report this week warned of the threat of North Korea’s “other weapon” — tuberculosis. In February, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria announced that it would suspend grants to combat tuberculosis and malaria in North Korea by June 30.

Global Fund officials stress that they hope to resume funding to the country in the future, and North Korean officials have implored the Global Fund to maintain its funding on humanitarian grounds.
