A ‘Paradigm Shift’ Needed to End TB
Recruit a ‘Health Peer’ to support the new Global Plan to end TB.
We all want to ensure that our children have healthy lives. Yet TB – the world’s most deadly infectious disease – is responsible for far too many unnecessary deaths. Diagnosis and treatment rates are unacceptably low.
On 20 November, the United Nations’ Stop TB Partnership released an ambitious new Global Plan to End TB, showing how the world can end tuberculosis (TB) within a generation. At the current rate of progress, it will take 150 years to end TB. The new Plan shows what we need to do now to meet the target of ending TB by 2030.
