Far from a thing of the past, this disease kills some 1.7 million people every year.
How is it possible that the world’s deadliest infectious disease is actually curable, but so many people are still dying from it?
We surveyed 29 TB-affected countries and found that many are using outdated and ineffective policies, practices and tools for diagnosing and treating TB.
Tuberculosis is preventable, treatable, and curable. Even in resource-constrained countries, it’s not just a question of money. It’s also a problem of political will and priorities that neglect people who are the poorest and most vulnerable.
In just a few days, for the first time ever, world health leaders are gathering in Moscow for a tuberculosis summit organized by the World Health Organization.
Our plan is to deliver a flood of signatures from concerned citizens around the world, united with people affected by tuberculosis, to tell these government officials that now is the time to #StepUpforTB and provide the life-saving treatment people need!
