Heavt breathing The Most Neglected Disease (TB)

Two years ago a colleague and I were awarded a grant for a reporting project on the subject of HIV prevention. We chose our location and pitched the story, and soon two major media outlets were on board to publish our work. One year later we were awarded a subsequent grant to conduct a reporting project on tuberculosis. We pitched the same outlets as before, and waited. Then we pitched more, and waited. And waited. It took several months of emails to editors—many unanswered and some turning into endless threads—to finally place the story.
