Infectious disease affects billions of people on a global scale; from third world countries to hospitals in the United States, it’s a threat that is constantly changing and evolving. Mediaplanet's “Fighting Infection” campaign sparks a conversation on the current obstacles facing infection prevention and offers strategies for the healthcare community to help decrease the number of completely preventable deaths caused by these infections.

The discussion of fighting infection covers large scale issues from poverty, to hospital acquired infections, to antibiotic resistance. The solution to fighting infection lies in the recognition that these issues are intertwined and need to be problem solved by encouraging patients and healthcare workers to work together.

Ansha, an Ethiopian mother and patient healing from Trachoma trichiasis, graces the cover of the print campaign. Her story of triumph over infectious disease is just one example of what is possible when education, funding and treatment come together to offer a patient a new lease on life.

The print component of “Fighting Infection” is distributed within the Friday, March 24th regional circulation of the weekend edition of USA Today, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000 within the New York, DC/Baltimore, Minneapolis, Houston and San Francisco markets. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.
