    schema:description ""Both prevention and impact mitigation responses have been half-hearted and inadequate. The results of this failure to rise to the challenge over the last decade will be apparent for many years ahead. Failure to respond is hardly surprising given a global order where national governments are unable, unwilling or cannot always see how to take responsibility and where the 'international system' has failed to cope. Multinational corporations have a responsibility and so do the Byzantine bureaucracies of some United Nations agencies. Globally the rich have a responsibility and long-term self-interest in confronting the roots of this and other epidemics of infectious disease. How to shoulder that responsibility remains a problem that must be rapidly resolved."--BOOK JACKET."@en ;
