HANOI, November 25, 2015 -- Today, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that Bedaquiline, the first new medication to fight drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) in over 40 years, is now available in Vietnam through its partnership with Janssen Therapeutics of Johnson & Johnson. This innovative partnership is a significant step forward in the global fight against the growing health threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Tuberculosis remains one of the most common communicable diseases in Vietnam with 130,000 new cases found and 17,000 deaths every year. As the public health burden of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is also prevalent, Vietnam is among the first countries in the world receiving the Bedaquiline donation to support its continuing efforts to fight the disease.

Climate change is a global issue that knows no national boundaries and a challenge that can best be addressed internally.  The negative impact felt by the people living in communities like Quất Lâm is shared in communities in the U.S. That’s why environment was highlighted as an important issue in the Comprehensive Partnership that was announced last year between President Sang and President Obama.   The tangible effects of climate change are one of the reasons that we are so committed to cooperating with the Government of Vietnam to address this important area.
