World TB Day: EDCTP investments in TB research rise to EUR 127 million
World Tuberculosis Day on 24 March 2019 is themed ‘It’s time’. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) explains, the theme underlines “the urgency to act” on the commitments made by global leaders in September 2018. At the United Nations TB summit, world leaders agreed to do what was necessary to end TB, i.e. to scale up access to prevention and treatment; ensure enough financing (including for research); and promote a rights-based and people-centred response. This World TB Day, WHO calls on governments and all other partners involved to unite and to find and treat all.
